Started walk at a car park on the A82 just before the actual village of Glencoe and followed a private road that leads to a B&B and farm. After reaching and crossing a bridge the path now takes a detour to avoid the two houses. Once past the farm sheds we continued up the Glenn-leac-na-muidhe to where the good path ends and turns S. To reach the ridge of Meall Lighiche we had to cross the main river, which was harder than the picture suggests as it was deep in places and fast flowing.
Crossing the River
After the climb up to the NE ridge the views open out and the view back to the cloud drifting over the Clachaig gully with the autumn colours was stunning.

Once on the main ridge it was a steep pull up grass slopes to reach the cairn on Creag Bhan where there were great views to Sgor na h-Ulaidh.Sgor na h-Ulaidh from Creag Bhan
From the cairn on Crag Bhan we followed the line of iron fence posts to the summit cairn.

After leaving the summit to return by the same upward route we were rewarded with the great view of the twin peaks of Beinn a' Bheithir all the way back down the ridge.

Another great day out this year and knew Glencoe would never fail !
