Skived off hostel duties today (with the wife’s permission of course!) and headed across the Corran Ferry to do the Garbh Bheinn horseshoe with Ian and Dylan the hostel Labrador.
It was hot and steep work under blue skies but plenty of lochans for Dyls to cool off in. The route was harder than I thought (I should have had more than a cursory glance at a map) it takes in two Grahams and a Corbett – five significant up sections, two of which are very steep.

Looking back to the summit just before the final descent.
View towards Glencoe
A great hill with great views, will be back one day for some scrambling or easy routes. Nice and quiet as well, we only saw a pair of climbers and a family walking….perfect when you’ve got an excitable Labrador with you.
