You would not need a calculator to add the number of Corbetts I had climbed so the opportunity to join Kev and Sharon on a Saturday morning jaunt up Beinn Each was an offer that could not be refused. The weather was grim as I drove towards the Kincardine bridge but the forecast promised something better late in the morning.
I noticed that a couple of the higher Ochill peaks had a layer of snow so was interested to see what the bigger peaks near Crianlarich would look like. I drove through Callendar and met up with Kev and Sharon at the layby on the A84. It was just Milo and myself today. Inca was recovering from an operation so Emma was staying at home.
We headed up the path that leads to the farm and into the forest. As we left the forest there was a decent view backwards of Ben Ledi and as we pushed higher up the clouds began to break and patches of blue sky appeared. Milo was having a great time running up and down and as we approached 700 metres, we hit the snow. Nothing major, just a smattering on the surface but winter had arrived! By the time we hit the summit, the wind had dropped and we spent a good thirty minutes chilling out and admiring the amazing views. A leisurely walk back to the car and I was back in Dunfermline for 2pm
