Beinn Chabhair

Yet another beautiful day at the end of February saw Richard and I toiling up the side of the Ben Glas waterfall in warm spring sunshine en route to Beinn Chabhair. There was real heat in the sun which was already beginning to melt the frosted moorland and the ice in the burn by the time we stopped for a breather
at Lochain Beinn Chabhair. A steep climb took us on to the north west ridge of the mountain where deep pockets of hard packed snow and some icy sections on the north facing slopes meant a careful progression to the summit cairn. Blue skies, pristine snow and sunshine, and fantastic views! We descended along the ridge to Lochain a' Chaisteil and back down the side of Ben Glas waterfall where we had the pleasure of meeting Benji, a handsome ginger and white cat, taking a stroll up the hill with his two young companions. Safe on a lead, he seemed to be enjoying his day just as much as we had.
