Glen Sannox to Glen Rosa

10th September 2009
Hilary, Lorna, Toosh and I started out at the bottom of Glen Sannox and walked up the Glen towards the Saddle. The first photo shows the morning cloud hanging over Suidhe Fhearghas (Fergus's Seat) as we started the walk, past the old salt mines and with the beautiful Cioch na h'Oighe (with the Devil's Punchbowl) on our left. As we got further up the Glen we could hear the rutting calls of the stags, and saw one quite close to us (encouraged, no doubt, by Toosh's impersonations!)
As we neared the crest of the saddle, we needed our hands, knees and Toosh's help to scramble up the chimney. The view from the top is great, as you can see all the way back down Glen Sannox and also down into Glen Rosa, as well as seeing the tops of all the mountains.
