Munro Madness July 28th An Teallach
Munro Madness July 28th An Teallach. A wonderful day with John on the misty mountain. Reputed to be one of the finest mountains in Britain, An Teallach certainly lives up to both is billing and its reputation.
2 Munros – Bidein a’Glas Thuill and Sgurr Fiona
- Ascent – 1150m
- Distance – 10 km
- Time – 6 hours
- Weather – Thundery showers throughout the day with windy condition high up on the mountain. Summits were misty with brief clear patches.
- Munro Total – Now 46
Parking outside the Dundonnel Mountain Rescue hut we started our walk in heavy showers. Summits were not clear but we hoped for increasingly better weather during the day. The walk gains height quickly and after a couple of hours we were 3/4 of the way up the mountain (in terms of ascent).
A group of 10 summer plumage Ptarmigan announced theri presence by calling, otherwise we would never have seen them only 5 metres from the path. The summit of Bidein a’Glas Thuill looks imposing but a track around the side of the ridge made for steady going.
After celebratory pictures we headed down the ridge and up the more challenging Sgurr Fiona and onto the An Teallach ridge proper. We were greeted on the summit by a Mountain Hare!
Some client feedback from Johns wife!
Thanks so much for going up with John, he really enjoyed it, great that he did the ridge that he didn’t think he’d do too! Many thanks for the pics, they’re great.
