Geal Charn, Drumochter

April 2005
Our second attempt at the Munro Geal Charn, 3008ft (917m), at Drumochter. We didn't bother going to the summit on our first try a couple of weeks previous due to low cloud. I like to have a view from a summit, otherwise what is the point?!

This attempt looked more promising, cloud just touching the highest tops. We walked from Balsporren Cottages by the A9, and up via the track that crept up the flank of neighbouring Creagan Mor.

It was a very hazy day unfortunately, and we struggled to see many of the neighbouring hills but at least the sun was shining!

We headed back down the direct track from Geal Charn, rather than the way we went up.

My other half ahead of me as usual! Heading across to Geal Charn
