QUINAG, CORBETT BAGGING
Third and final day taking the guys out on some of the finest mountains the UK has to offer. So much choice of amazing peaks from the Ullapool area. Today we headed north to Assynt and a lovely group of three Corbett's ( mountains 2500ft - 3000ft). Quinag is the collective name for this trio of wonderful hills sandwiched between the western seaboard and beautiful Loch Assynt. Stunning views with clear tops and sunshine most of the time. A cold northerly breeze again and a dusting of overnight snow above 700m, most of this melted away by the time we reached our first summit. A brilliant end to a fab trip. If you've never ventured north and west of Inverness to this land of magical mountains then shame on you! Do it now! Looking like the cold weather is sticking around till May. It will get warmer shortly but in the meantime enjoy the nice bright, clear days. Just wrap IP warm!
