Glen Coe High Tops Trip
This year we thought it would be nice to base ourselves in Glen Coe for a chance to experience committing winter walking without driving up every day. We will be staying at the SMC Lagangarbh hut, which has all their excellent facilities, and is close to the Kingshouse Hotel.
Day One - Beinn a' Beithir (10.8km with 1560 metres of ascent)
After driving up from Falkirk we'll get straight on the hill once we arrive in Glen Coe. Beinn a Bheithir, otherwise knwon as the Balachullish Horseshoe, has two Munros. We'll ascend by Schoolhouse ridge if conditions are favourable, tick both Munros and descent via Beinn Bhan.
Day Two - Traverse of Bidean nam Bian (9km with 1370 metres of ascent)
Doing a traverse of this mountain massif really gives one a sense of its grandeur. We;ll go up from Dalness in Glen Etive, go over Stob Coire Sgreamhach and continue along to Bidean. After ticking both these Munro summits we'll finish by going over Stob Coire nan Lochain, a fantastic summit in its own right, and down the torurous path to the tourist car park in Glen Coe.
Day Three - Pap of Glencoe & Sgorr nam Fiannaidh (7.3km with 1100 metres of ascent)
A shorter outing here for tired legs! The Pap is a tremendous viewpoint and a continuation onto Sgorr nam Fiannaidh, the westernmost Munro summit of the Aonach Eagach, gives a great day out without any mountaineering.
Previous winter hill walking experience and a good level of hill fitness is essential.
