Sunday’s walk comprises two Munros that form the westward end of the great Ben Lawers ridge. The start, at almost 550 metres, makes this a short round for baggers but the terrain is very rough – and peat bogs unavoidable but still worth the outing.
Unfortunately neither Bill, Sandy nor I can make the walk but Jo has bravely stepped in to be there and she will be there in her black campervan.
There is parking just north of the summit of the Lairig an Lochain road that links Loch Tay with Glen Lyon, marked by a large cairn (Grid ref NN 593 416 for those of you that like that sort of thing). The days are long so let’s meet at 10.00 for a 10.30 start.
As Bill told you last time, we have been invited to join Bill Cook’s ‘training for Morocco’ walk on Sunday. There is a selection of walks in the Pentlands ranging from 1/2 an hour to 5 hours – so there is something suitable for everyone. When we have finished there is the Flotterstone Pub with a good selection of beers. It is close to civilisation so we should have a reasonable turnout.
The meeting point is Flotterstone car park at 11.00 for a 11.30 start (positively civilised timing)
This is also going to be Bill C’s charity walk for the Little Sherpas Foundation, so he is asking for a donation of £10 on the day.
As always if you need/want to be involved in car-sharing let me know and I’ll see what can be done.
