Ryvoan Bothy – Monday 27th May

Parking at Glenmore Lodge we set off to climb two Munros but with the weather deteriorating rapidly our plans soon changed and we pitched up at Ryvoan Bothy for some welcome shelter for lunch.

After a respite from the conditions outside we decided to tackle the Corbett Meall a’Bhuachaille above the bothy.  With wind so strong we could barely stand, the ridge beyond the shelter was not an option, and after gaining the summit shelter we retraced our steps for the day.
