Glencoe Weekend

Setting off for
Stob Coir’ an Albannaich

12 of the club members went on the summer weekend, staying at the Glencoe YH, this being the first time we had been there and it is a hostel we would highly recommend.

On the Saturday the weather was fantastic and no complaints were heard. The team split up into 3 groups, 2 groups tackling munros and the last going for 2 Grahams all three walks were no easy feat and we were all glad of the clear conditions. The only problem arose due to overheating and the reminder that we all need to drink a lot of water when tackling high mountains.

On the Saturday evening we all descended on the Clachaig Inn (probably the most iconic mountaineering pub in Scotland) the place was busy but we all had a good time. Later in the evening we were treated to a live band, not traditional more mainstream rock.

On the Sunday the weather changed as it had been pretty good most of that week. We all decided to head east.
