Alex MacIntyre Hut, Onich (Glencoe) (Oct 2019)

11 – 13 October 2019

Another great DMC weekend started with an assault on the Mamores, a group of mountains south of Ben Nevis which contains 10 Munros plus other peaks. A group of runners started at the west, a group of walkers started in the middle and a third group started on the east. Berenice formed the link between groups 2 and 3 when she met Iain and Andrew on the ridge up Binnein Mor. Unfortunately, the runners had poor conditions and descended early; just a couple of km further east we were blessed with great views, magnificent rainbows and Brocken spectres. A full day out in a big range of ridges and peaks, where every step reveals a changing view of dramatic cliffs and sweeping glens.

On Sunday two groups started in completely different places but were able to wave to each other across Glen Creran. From the summit of Beinn Fhionnlaidh the others could be seen climbing the Ballachulish horseshoe ridge between their two Munros.

Some members stayed an extra night and spent Monday scrambling up Bidean in Glencoe.
