Bedford CCF Hillwalkers

Just spent a great 5 days with Bedford CCF walkiing in the hills around Glencoe and Lochaber. We had fine spring weather for the most part and being spring the midges arent out yet! On the first day we climbed Buachaille Etive Beag (both peaks), on the second we did the pleasant scramble up the North ridge of Stob Ban and contiued to Sgurr an Iubhair. The 3rd day was a little damper so we crossed the Devil's Staircase (via Stob Mhic Mhartuin, the peak to the west) and then we prepped for our overnight trip. My group left Mamore Lodge above Kinlochleven and headed past Loch Eilde Mor and Loch eilde Beag. We had lunch in the sun at the ruined lodge at Luibeilt before continuing to camp beside the lovely bothy at Staonaig. The next day we headed east to Loch Treig and then north through the Lairig Leacach before returning to the hostel for a well earnt meal.
