Easter 2011 - Day 4: South Ridge of Stob Coire Easain to Corrour Station

Distance: 9.5km; Ascent: 250m; Solo

It was overcast, but dry when I woke up, with all the tops out of the cloud.  I set off walking soon after 8am and descended the steep ground down to the Allt na Lairige.  I followed close to the east bank of this river, past waterfalls, down to Loch Treig.

After crossing the bridge at Creaguaineach Lodge, it was easy walking along tracks alongside Loch Treig and then across the moorland to Corrour Station.  I arrived at the station at 11:30am, with a whole hour to spare before the train.  The SYHA hostel here was open for lunch so I had haggis, neeps and taties; a change from the dehydrated food I had had the past few days.

All in all, it was a very good backpack.  The weather could have been better, but it really wasn't too bad; the worst was on Saturday morning.  I had managed to climb all the Munros and Corbetts that I had planned to do, even if I was a bit tired at the end of it!
