Otters, Imirean and Meall Glas

I have to be brief. Or antisocial. So I'll be brief.

This morning Les passed us his binoculars. "Look at that family of otters" he suggested. We did. From his living room window. Wonderful.

The weather was better today, as you can see from the picture of Sue (rather distant) on the top of Meall Glas. She was moving faster than me today, so I went up a rather easier hill - Beinn nan Imirean.

The snow was soft. Hard going. Lovely and sunny, though. An excellent outing.

We reconvened at about 500 metres and strolled back down to Auchessan together.

After collecting provisions in Killin, we proceeded to Culdees Bunkhouse above Loch Tay, for a weekend with 14 other members of the XXL (Aberdeen) Hillwalkers Club.

A very sociable evening ensued.

Culdees Bunkhouse. Mmm. Called in there when we did the Rob Roy Way after coming off Ben Lawers.
I have an opinion but not for publishing.
Hope you all have a great time. You are certainly getting about a bit. Sue beating you to the top! Well done Sue.

Culdees: we survived...

There were several negatives, but if you started by listing the positives - views, drying room, music room, ovens, big dining table, cosy rooms with plenty of storage, etc, it seemed ok.

The problem in this area is a wonderful abundance of hills, but very little by way of bunkhouse accommodation that is suitable for club visits.
