Glen Shiel

Hannah, Lisa and myself had a day out in Glen Shiel today. With perfect weather and 360 degree views we couldn’t have asked for more. The snow under foot was deep and tough going in places with deep drifts and compacted areas of wind slab across the tops. But with some hard graft we made it to the top of Carn Ghluasaid then around to Sgurr nan Conbhairean, with views across to Skye and Torridon. For Lisa’s 2nd winter day and 3rd and 4th Munros it was a good achievement. After much bum sliding, diving and falling in the snow we were back at the van after 12km and 6.5 hours of walking.
