Beinn a'Chaorainn and Beinn Teallach

Date: 20/11/2007
Height: 1150m
Distance: 17 Km
Grid: NN36108600 (Beinn Teallach), NN38608510 (Beinn a'Chaorainn)
Companions: Dougie
Weather: Drizzly patches with light snow on the tops and cloud.

This was a quick day – a 9:45 start and off by 3:10.

Starting from Roughburn we followed the forestry track to a junction where we turned left for a few metres and then headed North through a wooded area. Next we headed across the hillside to some crags and from there, up across the hillside. There was snow on the ground from around 900m and it was lightly snowing as we hit the ridge that lead to the summit of Beinn a’Chaorainn.

We continued over the summit in thick cloud and descended the other side where we came out of the cloud at around 800m and carried on to the bealach (and cairn). then headed steeply up onto the ridge which we followed South to the summit of Beinn Teallach.

the route off was to continue over the summit for about 2 Km and then head down to the Allt a’Chaorainn where we picked up the stalkers (quad bike) track back to the forestry track and back to the car.

An excellent day, but we need to focus more on route finding when clagged in.
