Weekend in Glencoe area with variety of activities with a number of Munros bagged; Corbetts bagged; great route climbed; an island visited; two lasses going for a swim; three off for a run and a great viewpoint visited. Plenty of crack and banter - as well as use of headtorches.I wasn't sure of the weather on the Saturday and headed to the island of Lismore - a bit further down the coast. Good for a walk but would be good to have a bike and bike along its length and back. Foot passenger boat from Appin. The bulk of the team headed for Summit Gully of Stob Coire nam Beith and had a great day - and made the most of it with need for use of headtorches at the end. Sunday had the Ballachullish Horseshoe lined up - not done this before so keen to do it. Went up the Schoolhouse Ridge - which is a bit more interesting than I had expected - especially in the conditions. With the conditions decided to come back down from the col between the two main summits. Monday Heather and Isobel went for a swim which the male contingency observed - then Heather, John and Paul (Rucksack Club member staying there who had recently done the South Spine Race !!) went for a low level run round the south side of Ballachullish Horseshoe and we arranged to meet then at Ballachullish - 20 plus km away.The rest of us went up the nice hill of Ardsheal Hill near Kentallen with great views over Loch Linnhe before meeting the otherBallachullishllish after their run of 3 hours.Homeward bound I popped up to have a look at the Glencoe Ski Centre which looked rather damp - but there had been skiing that day as I found out from Irish Mick who was heading to Glasgow on the bus with his snowbound so gave him a life - with plenty of other crack with him.Great weekend !! ...
