Glas Maol and Creag Leacach

Date: 28/12/1999
Height: 1000 m
Distance: 6 miles
Grid: NO16607650 (Glas Maol), NO15507450 (Creag Leacach)
Companions: Dougie
Weather: Cold but clear day with full snow cover

From the Cairnwell car park we headed down the road for 2 Km then followed the stream and then the North ridge and so the summit.

We left Creag Leacach and headed along the ridge to Glas Maol, following the wall. There were very strong winds blowing loose up.

On reaching Glas Maol it was almost whiteout conditions, we could not see more than about 20 metres and could not make out any terrain. It required accurate map and compass navigation to find the summit trig point.

Although we had planned to do all six munros in this area, we decided to cut things short and walked off following the ski runs / lifts.
