Geo-Trips :: Through the Lairig Ghru in mid winter

Corrour bothy and the Lairig Ghru

A walk from Corrour bothy, Fri, 2 Mar 1990 by Richard Law

preceding legThis trip is part of a series.

The second of two days traversing the Lairig Ghru in the middle of winter, as part of a Wrekin Mountaineering Club week in Aviemore. We'd been dropped at Linn of Dee the day before and spent the night at Corrour bothy, then walked through the Lairig in a good stiff breeze and deep snow cover, finishing at Glenmore Lodge.
