Up in Glen Coe – with a mixed forecast. We’ve had our eye on Stob Dubh in Glen Coe for a while. The shortest route approaches from Glen Ceitlein but having seen the hill from the N we thought we’d traverse Beinn Ceitlein.
Parked up opposite the infamous Alltchaorunn gate. Hefty showers pulsing up Glen Etive. Kicked off with waterproofs on.
We crossed the bridge just upstream from Alltchaorunn. This prevented any need to ford any other rivers – not a pleasant task this weekend.
There is a path tracking south round the end of Beinn Ceitlein. Struck uphill to climb the east end of the ridge. Steep grassy slope all the way.
The weather was coming and going. Mainly blowing and raining.
Arriving at the summit it was hail and winds – hunkered down for lunch.
Reversed route to return – fairly abysmal conditions.
Great walk, even in the conditions. Headed back the Clachaig for a few beers.
