Like many people we’ve been frustrated by bad conditions on the hill, and like so many others, had our share of seasonal lurgy. Ian has been frustrated in his winter climbing ambitions by a recurrence of a shoulder injury sustained at the excellent new Perth College Climbing Wall.
However, towards the end of February we did manage a little Corbett bagging expedition in the van to the eastern Cairngorms. On the first night we parked at Tomnaverie Stone circle near Tarland,www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/tarland/tomnaveriecircle/ and next morning nipped up Morvern before the weather deteriorated.We then headed to the parking at Keiloch on Invercauld Estate in preparation for a trip up Culardoch and Carn Liath the following day. We did this in an anti-clockwise direction , and were lucky to benefit from excellent weather and fine views of the eastern Cairngorms and Lochnagar.
