Creag Meagaidh – Natural Nature Reserve

Signs of autumn and winter were both evident within the NNR (Natural Nature Reserve) of Creag Meagaidh during a November walk there. Our aim was for an ascent of Creag Meagaidh itself if weather conditions favoured it and if views were likely, but from the outset this was going to be unlikely and so our group split after the pleasant walk in to Lochan a’ Coire sitting beneath Creg Meagaidh’s mass of cliffs.

Two continued up doing a round of the neighbouring summits of Stob Poite a’Choire Ardair and Carn Liath, and two of us just enjoyed a lazy walk back out after doing a walk round the lochan to try and get a closer look at the cliffs. The conditions at this point were the worst of the day so not much of a view up was granted after all, yet it was an interesting wander among some impressively large debris cast off by the cliffs above.

The way out (and in) passes through a nice stretch of woodland under re-generation and this provided our main interest for the day, the conditions were even improving but not enough to free the higher tops of their misty coat.
