On looking out the window this morning, the weather looked wonderful
It was my intention to ascend a small Marilyn above Loch Tay called Drummond Hill. It only took about one second to decide that Drummond Hill could wait for another day - the weather was too good to waste on a viewless tree-covered molehill.
Last-minute decision time, what would I go up instead?
I checked the map for nearby Munros that I still required for my second round. Geal-charn and A’Mharconaich fitted the bill perfectly - a reasonably short day and on my way home.
I drove to, and parked at Balsporran Cottages, where there is a large car park.
I last ascended Geal-charn and A’Mharconaich together with Beinn Udlamainn and Sgairneach Mhor, back in the summer of 1998.
