Fisherfield Shenavall

02 Jun 2017 - 04 Jun 2017


Alan, Lindsay, Janet, Trish, Lawrie, and Dave arrived at Corrie Hallie as arranged 16:00. Before the 7ks walk in, a birthday was celebrated, Alan joined the “SEVENTIES CLUB ” a cake and wine to wash it down was produced plus cards and “presies” of a Tee Shirt with the Gaelic wording CUIR EASBSA ANN AM, and a Baseball cap to match, Alan was fare tickled PINK !!!! Translation: ask Alan the next time you see him.

We arrived at Shenavall in brilliant sunshine with views of the Fisherfield hills in all their glory


Lawrie, Janet and Iain ( who arrived in the small hours on Saturday) had an early start (5ish) their mission was the “Big Six” – Beinn a’ Chaidheimh, Sgurr Ban, Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair, Beinn Tarsuinn, A’ Mhaighdean and Rhuadh Stuc Mor. Alan, Lindsay, Trish and Dave left sometime later – their mission was the 2 Corbetts Beinn Dearg Mor and Beinn Dearg Beag.

The days forecast was pretty spot on, bright sunny spells with heavy rain / hail, thunder and lightening, amazing the groups got back dry.


After a late start and leisurely breakfast, the group broke camp and walked out to Corrie Hallie by the longer route via Achneigie.

A most appreciated cup of tea/coffee was served to the stragglers by Lawrie who with Lindsay were the first back getting the kettle on. “Brilliant”

Another memorable weekend. “MISSIONS ACCOMPLISHED”
