Better the Devil you Know

Bealach summit Mamores behind

….and so, once again, on a Friday, we made our way to Glencoe, even though the weather forecast wasn’t particularly enticing, but it also gave Dad a chance to stock up on post Brexit tennis balls, emergency supplies and dog dinners in preparation for the apocalypse.

For a change, remarkably, the Blazemobile behaved perfectly well, so we made good time and never got re-acquainted with the nice breakdown truck guys.

We had to have a wee change of plan from the elusive Sgurr Elidhe Mor… yet again

A rousing cheer was given as we passed over the Invergarry bridge without incident this time. However, upon awaking on the Saturday morning, we were promised 60-70 knot winds and heavy rain at Munro heights, so we had to have a wee change of plan from the elusive Sgurr Elidhe Mor…yet again.

As we had based ourselves in Kinlochleven, we decided to do The Devils Staircase walk once more.

This is the highest point on the WHW as it climbs from Rannoch Moor and up and over down to Kinlochleven. Dad took me here all of 6 years ago, before I was allowed to climb proper mountains, and we even spent time at the climbing walls in The Ice Factor, (yes, dogs are welcome), so he thought we could re-enact that walk and see if we could get a similar pic at the same spot on the summit bealach.
