Glas Maol & Creag Leacach, maps 43; 14th March 2011

Route: Ascent 780m = 2560', 7.7 miles, 5.5hrs.

Route: Because of poor conditions and lack of time, this is a shortened version of the walk here. That walk includes Cairn of Claise & Carn an Tuirc and optionally Tom Buidhe and Tolmount. The first two of these were climbed the following day, as described here.
Conditions: A93 closed because of snow until after 11am. Hence the late start and shortened walk. 1°C at Spittal; Overcast till cairn at NO15987591; Sunny intervals thereafter. Whiteout from Little Glas Maol to cairn at NO15987591 (Hence slow speed there.) Snow underfoot throughout; in cloud from Glas Maol summit to cairn at NO15987591; Light winds.
