Out with a Falkirk High Tops Team of Isobel, Sam, Terry and Vic today. After a boggy approach from the White Corries ski area we climbed Creise via the North-East Ridge of Stob a’Ghlais Coire with some lovely easy scrambling on dry slabby rough rock. We then continued on around the head of the Cam Ghleann to Meall a’Bhuiridh before descending it’s North Ridge and dropping down through the ski area to the car park. This gave an excellent and slightly unusual round of these two Munros. Quite busy on the hill and we met lots of other walkers between Creise and Meall a’Bhuiridh.

Cloud developed through the day, but remained above the summits of all but the highest hills in the area whilst we were out. Winds were light southerlies and there was no precipitation until we started to drive back when we drove through some very heavy showers.
