Outing to the Lawers group

SIXTEEN members from the Forfar and District Hillwalking Club enjoyed a bus meet to the Lawers group on Sunday.

The walk started from Camusvrachan in Glen Lyon.

From the group, thirteen climbed the steep slopes up to Meall Garbh. From here five headed SE to An Stuc, Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas with eight walking W to Meall Greigh. Three members climbed the ridge to Meall a Choire Leith and on to Meall Corranaich.

Some strong winds and mist on the summits but skies eventually cleared to give some great views. Snow buntings were spotted and woody woodpecker was heard.

Please check www.fdhwc.org.uk as the next open meeting may be rescheduled to include a climbing session at Avertical World.
