A day out on the West Highland Line to Corrour today and up a wee gem of a hill, Leum Ullium. Standing at 908m it fails to be a Munro by only a few metres, thank goodness as it keeps it quiet, especially in winter. Corrour station lies at 400m so it's a nice hill to do between morning and afternoon trains from Fort William. Hard work in the fresh snow down to 400m, but once on the rocky, narrow NE ridge it was easy going, then  a snow shower and cloud dropped just before the summit, so another day of navving across featureless terrain, all good fun. Shame the cloud then cleared on the way down, as always. Rise in temp tomorrow so good for the snow pack consolidation.
