A Torridon Double…

traversing The Imposter

Last month some friends of mine came up from Glasgow.  They had the idea of traversing the Corbett, Beinn Dearg and the Munros on Beinn Alligin in one day.  We could not have asked for better conditions, a good east wind and lots of stories to catch up on, to make the walk in pass quickly!  Gerry McPartlin, the oldest person to do a continuous Munro Round had even offered to act as a pacemaker on the second half.  How could we possibly fail!

We didn’t fail and were treated to spectacular views all day.  It was a nice surprise to meet a few other walkers on Beinn Dearg.  The traverse of ‘The Imposter’ was an enjoyable scramble on solid Torridonian Sandstone – a real hidden gem.  Thanks to some teamwork we ‘cut the corner’ off the descent from Beinn Dearg to meet Gerry right on time at 3.00pm.  We did not see much of Gerry on the second half of Beinn Alligin as he played a ‘Jedi Mind Trick’ and left us all behind until the last Munro!

When we arrived at the car for 7.00pm little did we know what had been going on in Torridon that afternoon…
