Glen Etive

Yesterday I was out in Glen Etive with a Falkirk Community Trust High Tops Team of Billy, Duncan and John. We headed up the Allt Mheuran to the bealach before traversing Glas Bheinn Mhor and Meall nan Tri Tighearnan before descending by the Allt nam Meirleach. The weather turned out better than forecast with slightly lower winds and less rain, possibly as we benefited from higher hills to the North and North East where the weather was coming from.

Meall nan Tri Tighearnan and Ben Starav from Glas Bheinn Mhor.

The rain was fairly steady for large parts of the day, with the granite in the area looking pretty wet. The lower sections of the approach were fairly boggy, even after the dry spring, so good boots and gaiters or an acceptance of wet feet are worth having if tackling these hills.
