Today was intended to be the day of the second ever Instagram inspired Scotskimeet #scotskimeet2016. We’d been planning for a group of Instagrammers to descend on Glencoe Mountain Resort on its 60th birthday celebration. However Mother Nature saw fit to put paid to our plans with 60-70 mph winds. After sitting in the carpark in seemingly benign condition from 7am it was finally announced in worsening weather that the centre would not open.
We decided plan B would be lunch at the Clachaig before a short hike around the base of Buchaille Etive Mor. The weather was wild indeed which made it all the more impressive to see climbers coming down the main corrie of the mountain.
Everyone was still upbeat even though we hadn’t managed to complete the main purpose of the event. Between us we agreed we should try again in better weather.
Visit Instagram and search #scotskimeet2016 for images of the day.
As well as my own account @ruanaich you must visit my compatriots on the day:
Thanks must go to Glencoe Mountain Resort and Trespass for their support.
We will be back!
