Yesterday Katrina climbed two Munros.
We left Paisley at 8.20am and were walking by 9.30am. Here is a map of the route I was planning ….
The problem was I parked the car about 2miles too early thinking I was at the start point but we were on the opposite side of Ben More!!
As we were walking I was saying to Katrina that I’d quite like to do a map reading course as I feel I need to brush up on my skills. After this walk I’m more convinced I need some help!
It amazing how I was able to convince myself I was on the right route even though the landmarks were not really tallying with the map!!
Any it took us (well me!!) about 2 hours to realise where we actually where and that was only because we met some other walkers who knew where they where.
So here is the route as actually did ….
We still went up Stob Binnein and Ben More but from a different route!
Here are some photos …
Start of the walk
We’d been walking for about two minutes when Katrina looked at my waterproof map bag and said where is your map? It had fallen out the bag and so I ran back to the car and there it was lying on the floor with my compass!!
View as we climbed up to Stob Bennein
Katrina almost at the top of Stob Bennein with Ben More in the background
Me on the top … the mist came down just as we got there!
Looking back to Stob Binnein (with no cloud cover) as we climbed Ben More.
