Jan 28th Garbh Beinn, A fantastic 'Little-Big Hill'.

The Pap, looking autumnal.
The Summit Ridge looking more wintry.

Friday was a mixed day for weather. Cloud hung at 900m above Loch Leven and shrouded most of the higher hills in the area. The ground was starting to freeze up and the crags were looking whiter again, giving optimism of better conditions to return. I had a walk up Garbh Beinn 867m, a fine and overlooked Corbett above Loch Leven. It offers fabulous walking with real interest. Small crags, steep and with false summits it leaves it's fine summit to the last to come into view. The views of the Back of the Aonach and Meall Garbh are breathtaking. A remote and quiet area which should be explored more.
