Beinn na Lap

Yesterday saw Ivor, Nettle and I up early to catch the train from Crianlarich to the Corrour Halt on the West Highland line. We were on a fairly tight schedule to walk up Beinn na Lap and be back down for the 12:30 train, so climbed the hill by the easiest line and returned by the same route.

The tracks from the station to the Loch Ossian Youth Hostel and the base of Beinn na Lap have been improved fairly recently and make for easy going. The path up the South face of the hill was dry following the recent good weather, but could be very boggy after rain.

Unfortunately, there was cloud above 800m, so we didn’t get the excellent views from the summit. However, we were up and down in time to beat the heavy rain and to get coffee and a scone at the station before catching the train home.
