Loch Treig

Sometimes at this time of year when winter conditions have temporarily disappeared it’s good to just get out to blow some cobwebs away and get some hill miles into the legs. That’s what I was up to today.

I headed to Fersit near Loch Treig and ascended Stob Coire Sgriodain via Sron na Garbh-bheinne. I then continued on to Meall Garbh before heading back north to Chno Dearg. Rather than head straight back towards Fersit I decided to complete the watershed by taking in Meall Chaorach and Creag Dhubh before returning to Fersit. The going was quite rough and boggy in places, particularly after Chno Dearg.

There were just a few patches of old snow around and a little wet fresh snow above 950m. Winds were westerly around 40mph in the morning, but dropping during the day and there were showers on and off falling as rain to above 1050m during the day.
