Geal Charn: Nethy Bridge

Despite the onset of rain by the time Becky, Claire, and I were less than half way back from the summit of the Corbett Geal Charn just outside of Nethy Bridge, we still managed to make the most of a little sunshine this morning. The sledging down was a little less sucessful though. The walk to be fair isn’t that inspiring, mostly following a 4x4 track that seems to go to the summit. In all fairness I think this is more the sort of hill you would do as a run, but to add some interest you do pass a variety of buildings en-route.

Including an abandoned croft and a couple of shooting shelters, that make for good lunch spots!
Weather is looking not to bad for the next few days and the snowline is still quite low, so hopeful of another route or two before the rockshoes come out to play!
