The Corbetts are Scottish hills between 2,500 and 3,000ft, with at least 500ft ascent on all sides.

Day 28 - Kinlochleven to Loch Ossian Youth Hostel

Summit of Leum Uilleim Loch Ossian

Day 28 - Photos
Received a call this afternoon to say that was Glas Bheinn & Leum Ulleim done and that he was heading to the Youth Hostel. It was a lovely sunny day for a change so that obvioulsy has cheared him up (thank god) and hopefully the leg will be a bit better before I join him tomorrow.

Dave Rogers was going in tonight to meet him and hopefully his Dad to join them for the evening.

I am getting collected tomorrrow morning by Archie & Sandra where we will join him at Loch Rannoch. Also Johnston, Chris, Davie & Christine are hoping to be about over the weekend.

Thanks again Ken for helping out the last couple of days.

Hopefully we can hope for some better weather for the next couple of days.

Hi Manny,after weeks of computer meltdown i have just spent the last 3 hours catching up with your blog and photos so far on your amazing journey.Having moved back to Orkney 3 years ago i'm limited for any good hillrunning(apart from Hoy !),although we had a great week at Lochgoilhead at easter and the occasional trip to my dads outside Aberfeldy which allowed the legs some climbing ! It seems a long time since we raced against each other and just reading about your adventure makes me feel more ferry crossings should be made!
good luck to you,Brenda,family and support crew.I look forward to following your progress. cheers,Mike.
