Tom a’Choinich (1112m)


Day 2: Backpacked in to the far end of loch Mullardoch to set up camp. Rained all day. See a map of our route (as a PDF file) here…
If i were to do this again i’d get a ferry down Loch Mullardoch rather than walk in (for details call Karl on 01456 415347). The only good thing about the walk in was the wild flowers by the loch side. Specifically shed-loads of;

  • Common Milkwort
  • Wood Anemone
  • Spotted Orchid
  • Lousewort
  • Chickweed-Wintergreen (a new one for us)
  • Yellow Pimpernel (not seen this in Scotland before either)


Day 3: Left the tent and did a circular walk in more rain, bagging;

An Socach (921m)

An Socach (921m)

Day 4:Backpacked out again (in the rain) taking in;

Day 5: Ate a fantastic lunch in the Aviemore Mountain Cafe (best cafe in Scotland) and then went home with at least 3kg more water in our gear than we came with.
