Tarmachan, 26 October

This was the weekend that the Original Mountain Marathon (OMM) was called off and, in the eyes of the media, 1700 runners were lost in the Lake District. In Scotland the weather wasn't much better. We headed up towards Loch Tay with the intention of doing the Tarmachan Ridge, Beinn Oighreag and Meall Ghaordaidh. Upon reaching the summit of Tarmachan, the strength of wind combined with thick mist changed our plans - we about turned and aimed to Killin to shop in Killin Outdoor Centre and for a snack and a hot drink at the Smithy.
