Celebrating Autumn in Glen Quoich

We woke up on the shore of Loch Quoich to a magical view, but there was little time to sit around admiring it as we had two munro’s to climb.
Never Bears to take the easy route we shunned the path for a romp straight up the hill.
A map of our route
From the Shores of Loch Fearna Big Ted pointed out our route along the ridge to Gleouraich
The terrain around the Loch was full of peat hags and for an awful moment we thought we had lost Corbett
As we were slogging our way up to Spidean Mialach, listening to Stags bellowing in the distance, I suddenly remembered it was the stalking season. We had forgotten to check with the estate if it was safe to walk! I had visions of bounty hunters wishing to add bears to their stag tally 🙀
First Munro of the day, Mountaineering Bears and our furriend Sheltie the little lamb on Spidean Mialach
Should be safe from stalkers up here! What a beautiful day.
We stopped for lunch at Fiar Bealach
After lunch we found some cool slabs to climb. Lovely rough rock 😊
Sheltie took the path up the ridge but us bears stuck to the crest!
From the ridge we saw an eagle soaring overhead
The summit of Gleouraich the highest point of the day at 1034m altitude.
Always best to take a compass bearing when leaving the summit, we didn’t want to go down the wrong ridge!
I wonder if we will find a pot of gold at the base of the rainbow?
Quick rest but I think Big Ted is over doing it! I hope he doesn’t bring ticks back to the adventure wagon.
Almost back at the road, but still stunning views across the Loch. What a great way to start October! Paws crossed we don’t meet any coos on the road!
