Climbed with wife, Jill.
Climbed Beinn an Dothaid on 30 May 2010 with Jill.
This is one of my favourite mountains in the highlands. Been up it several times - but twice flew off by paraglider. First time I launched from the top and flew straight to the bottom in about 6 minutes, late evening after work July 1989. Second time I picked a thermic day in June 1991, launched half way up, flew up past the summit and up to cloudbase at around 5200ft, before runnig the gauntlet with fighter jets hurtling through the main valley below and landing. This flight lasted 55 minutes.
Climbed this in some of the worst weather I've ever experienced - the rain wasn't just horizontal it was 45 degrees uphill! Got completely soaked, and there were no views either.
Wet day, nice mountain.
Knee deep snow to the summit, but a better day out than retreating from Ben More the day before!
Uphill rain and then snow on top.......good day of mad weather
This was part of a a two week mountain binge at the end of university exams. We packed my old Toyota until it groaned and headed off to Lochdochart where we rented out a farm house and bagged everything we could find. There are some long circular routes in this region with fantastic views, which certainly make the days worth while.
but yet to climb a winter route
Day started well, until we got completely drenched half way up. First time I had convinced my young brother to join us as well. Brief views at the summit when the mist and cloud broke. Path on the descent was muddy and boggy at points due to the amount of rain. Hate it when my feet get wet.
