Munro with cancer #9

23rd April 2015, Beinn Bhrotain (M019), 3796ft, 1157m

From the bealach between Monadh Mor and Beinn Bhrotain there is a staggering view of the highest Cairngorm peaks which sets everything into perspective. It is worth making the effort to get to this place for this experience alone.


The route to the summit from here is over large wobbly red boulders. My descent into Glen Geldie was slowed by steep rough slopes and melting snowbanks. I made camp on the high grassy banks of the Geldie Burn.


The next day I walked south into Glen Tilt and made one more camp before returning home on the train from Blair Atholl.

Munro with cancer #8

23rd April 2014, Monadh Mor (M040), 3652ft, 1113m

This is a big flat nondescript pile of rocks in the middle of nowhere. From my camp under An Sgarsoch it was a long slog following the southern shoulder due north after crossing the upper reaches of the Geldie Burn. The above image is taken from the summit looking back south east towards the bulk of Beinn Bhrotain.
