An Attempt at Meall nan Tarmachan
Just north of the Scottish town of Killin, on the northern shores of Loch Tay, is a group of "hills" known as the Tarmachan Ridge. On this ridge there is only one Munro, Meall nan Tarmachan, however there are a number of peaks just around 3000 feet in elevation. After a long drive from Manchester the night before, along with an early rise and another hour plus in the hour out of Glasgow, this group of hills was the focus of my first day of hiking in Highlands of Scotland.
Visiting Ben Narnain and The Cobbler
Located near the small village of Succoth is the Munro Ben Narnain. Beside Ben Narnain is the more imposing hill called simply "The Cobbler". It was these two hills that we visited on my last day in Scotland. Starting our hike along Loch Long we climbed to the chilly, wind swept saddle between these two hills and contemplated an ascent up the icy hill sides.
