Wee Buachaille

Here it is, in all its glory. Yesterday was a stunning day. I set off from the house at 4.30, arriving in Glencoe in good time and set off up the hill for 7.15. The steps were uncomfortable but not nearly as bad as people had mentioned. Once up to the bealach I opted for Stob Coire Raineach first. On the climb I was noticing very little riding which I was hoping wasn’t going to set me up for the day.I reached the summit at 8.30 and just took in the sheer beauty of my surroundings for 20minutes. After the photos were taken it was time to attempt the ride back down, I got a little more in than I was expecting on the climb up, although it brought a new level of technical.Once down at the bealach it was straight up the other side, which didn’t seem to take too long at all, then everything seemed to level out, allowing me to ride 80% of the ridge across to Stob Dubh. Another short hike’a’bike and I was at the second summit of the day for 10.00. Breakfast certainly came with a view and also some good company in the way of a couple from Norwich who travel up here on two holidays a year, typically bagging 10 Munro’s each time.After some wraps, fluids and a natter, it was time to ride back down the the ridge, this time I had gravity on my side and a stunning backdrop. It was sensational. Dropping down to the bealach had some great riding albeit very loose, the paths were merely scree for the best part of the day, making braking difficult and me a bit edgy about knocking some stones loose, in case they continued down the hill. As expected, the ‘steps’ were a carry for the most part, but wherever I could ride, I did. Then finally reaching the bottom of the steep section meant it was a mellow final section back to the truck.All that’s left to say, is make sure you watch the video in HD and enjoy.
