Glas Bheinn

DoE expedition season is once more well under way, so the tent has been hauled out of winter storage and the sleeping bag aired.
Last week, however, Andrew and I took advantage of some bright spring weather to drive up to Kinlochleven to climb Glas Bheinn, an isolated Corbett overlooking Loch Eilde Mor.  There is quite a lot of work going on around the outlet dam here so crossing was not as straightforward as it could have been, but we made it without getting wet and headed for the summit by way of Meall na Cruaidhe.
The sun shone on us, and we got some great views from the snow covered summit before descending directly northwest to cross the loch by a causeway and back to Kinlochleven on the track to Mamore Lodge.
