AONACH EAGACH - Sunday 7 June 2015
 
Kevin, Samra, Drew and potential new member Andrew Buchan met at 07:00 in Milngavie and drove up to Glencoe in Drew's car.

Parked at small car park at east end of the glen at bottom of path leading up to Aonach Eagach.  Weather forecast for the morning was marginal with moderate wind on ridge and potential showers. Cloud level was just below ridge level. We decided to leave it for a clear day.

Plan B was the Munro SGOR NA H-ULAIDH and the Corbett MEALL LIGHICHE.  We left the car,  parked on A82 (NN 119 564) at 09:15 and followed track then path alongside the Alt na Muidhe, passed through the farm Gleann-leac-na-muidhe and continued up to col between Sgor na h-Ulaidh and Meall Lighiche.

Kevin and Andrew then headed NW towards the summit of Meall Lighiche and Drew and Samra headed straight up towards the ridge just west of Sgor na h-Ulaidh.
There appeared to be various ways through the crags but this proved to be slightly rougher terrain than it looked from below.  After some scrambling Samra and Drew reached the summit at 12:45.  Great views of surrounding hills which still had a surprising amount of snow cover.
Followed track back over summit of Stob an Fhuarain and Aonach Dubh a Ghlinne before descending NW back down to path we walked in on.  Back at car at 16:15.

Kevin and Andrew had arrived back about 15 minutes before, having descended from summit of Meall Lighiche by coming over Creag Bhan and down the NNW ridge to the path.
 
We stopped for customary refreshments at the Bridge of Orchy Hotel.
