TGO Challenge 2010 - Day 4: Eas Chia-aig Waterfalls to Laggan Locks
There wasn't a cloud in the sky when I got out of the tent this morning. I set off walking up past the Eas Chia-aig waterfalls at 9am. The going was easy for the first hour and a half along the forest tracks. The ground was then quite rough all the way up to the Cam Bealach, which I reached at 12:30 for lunch.
Leaving all my camping stuff hidden behind a boulder in the bealach, I nipped up the two munros: Meall na Teanga and Sron a Choire Ghairbh. It drizzled intermittently on the way up to the summits, but luckily the cloud stayed high enough to ensure I had some good views from the tops.
I reached the forest track above Loch Lochy at 5ish, then the hostel at 6:30ish where I met Peter & Avril. John, Andrew, Alan & Phil arrived somewhat later having been waylaid by the floating pub.
