Perhaps the only Corbett grouping that allows so many to be climbed in a sensible single day, the Tyndrum Five makes a rewarding challenge for connoisseurs of the quality walking to be found below the 3000-foot threshold. It’s a well known route, yet far less threadbare than the more heavily used multi-Munro rounds. Paths are faint and crowds unlikely, and this peace is very appealing... especially at a time when we're all trying to avoid each other.
A great day out, met 2 people all day despite it being a sunny bank holiday weekend. Highlight was getting to the top of a knoll and finding a golden eagle feasting on a sheep's corpse a few feet away down the other side.
> Did it a few years ago. Big day, needed chicken curry & chips from the real food cafe to recover.
It is a big day - bigger than many Munro outings. They're all on the watershed, so I did them in one go in 1987 with a camping pack - don't think I could do that now. Also (as a day out) once did Tyndrum-Mhanach-Creag Mhor-back over two of the Corbetts - that can't often be done, but was good as I recall.
