Jane's Last Corbett on Arran - Goatfell

Saturday 22nd May


Late May 2021 and lockdown was just beginning to open up which allowed a few DHC members to travel across to Arran for the postponed climbing of Jane's last Corbett via Glen Sannox and the scrambly ridge.


We had a few wild, wet and windy days with occasional sun and hail which restricted our activities to short cycles and walks including to Huttons Uncomformity.


However, Saturday 22nd turned out to be a magnificent bright and sunny day so Susan, Katie, Sandy, Alan, Jeff, Bob and Jane set off from Glen Sannox for a fantastic outing traversing the entire ridge from north to south.


Althea chose to walk up the tourist path and was there to meet us at the summit.
