Today I had the pleasure of being joined by Dawn and Stephen on one of our Aonach Eagach days. The traverse of the Aonach Eagach is one of the finest mountaineering journeys on the mainland, and links the two Munros of Meall Dearg and Sgorr nam Fiannaidh. It’s lofty crest dominates the north wall of Glencoe, and has continual interest from start to finish.
Dawn and Stephen proved themselves to be competent scramblers, so the rope stayed in my pack today. The weather behaved, and we were treated to great views of the surrounding hills, as well as atmospheric clouds bubbling away on the north side of the ridge.
A great tick for Dawn and Stephen, and hopefully the first of many great scrambles throughout the Highlands.
We still have spaces on our remaining two Aonach Eagach days, on the 5th August and 8th September, so if you fancy a crack at this brilliant ridge, please get in touch! https://www.westcoast-mountainguides.co.uk/courses/aonach-eagach-guide/
