Monadh Mor and Beinn Bhrotain.
« on: 13:26:23, 06/09/17 »
Just a short trip report. I started out from the end of the Glen Feshie road at Achlean farm and followed the path up Carn Ban Mor.









Looking back to Glen Feshie.


From Carn Ban Mor I crossed the moors to Loch nan Cnapan and walked up Tom Dubh.

Loch nan Cnapan with Sgor Gaoith behind.


After Tom Dubh I dropped down a little bit to get across the stream of Allt Luineag and then climbed Monabh Mor.

Beinn Bhrotain from Monabh Mor.


There's just a short down and up again between Monabh Mor and Beinn Bhrotain.

Me on the summit of Beinn Bhrotain.


I returned the way I'd come and camped by the Allt Luineag for the night. It got quite windy during the early hours apparently 60mph at automatic weather station on Cairgorm summit, 12km away.



Where ever I lay my hat, that's my home. The beer car stove was a bit of an experiment, not a very good one.

 
Next day it was still very windy so I just returned to the car and called it a day.

Thanks for the trip report...........most folk on here won't have a clue where you were! Quite sure you didn't pass many walkers.

I'm quite sure you're right there very out of the way even for the Cairngorms. I think I saw half a dozen other walkers all weekend.

Nice photos and no, I had no idea where in Scotland it was  :) The Cairngorms is on our list of places we want to go to, thanks for posting  O0

I'm trying to work out what tent you are using, it sort of looks like it could be a trekkertent?

Local hills for me :) ....I can see the upper part of the track that was taken to reach the Moine Mhor plateau from my house window....although not both of these hills from here.  You are likely to see more folks on the 'Great Moss' in the early part of summer when the visiting Dotterel come here to ground nest. 
I think that nowadays there are in excess of 5,000 'Munro round' compleaters....so I guess that it gets a bit of traffic :) [size=78%] [/size]

It's a Tarptent Notch, same sort of idea as the trekkertents, using walking poles as uprights but American. I didn't know about Trekkertents when I brought it. I was quite impressed it stood up to the wind that night. It's a one person tent but they do others which are two person.
