Beinn a' Bhric and Leum Uilleim from Corrourrhalstead11/06/2024
Train from Glasgow to Corrour - plenty of passengers disembarked at Corrour. Up via An Diollaid on a beautiful sunny day with the strong winds keeping the midges at bay. On to Leum Uilleim and Leum Uilleim South Top. Having chatted to a couple of walkers who appeared from a more direct route from the station I descended down the steeper path for a beer at Corrour station and then the train back to Glasgow.Buck03/06/2024
