Ascent Trip Report

A grand day out in wild country to end the season. Ascent via Strathan, Glen Dessary, and Coire an Eich. Descent into Glen Pean and damply back past the bothy. From there back to Strathan there was tree felling going on but the (new, widened) road was passable as operations had moved further up the hillside. After a pint in the Clachaig on the way, Andrew was kind enough to take me all the way back to my parents house in Edinburgh (thanks, mate!)
