With the hint of a much better weather day than of late I headed a bit further east today to escape the showers over on the west coast. The wonderful West Highland train line has many stations where you can hop off and have a great adventure. Today I had just a mini run up the hill of  Beinn na Lap from Corrour station. Corrour stands in lovely isolation high on Rannoch Moor at over 400m above sea level, almost half way up the hill, a treat for west coasters. It had to be a quick dash up and down the hill having less than 3 hours between the trains. Beinn na Lap is one of the easiest and shortest Munros, time wise that is, not height wise. As expected saw no one on the hill so it's a lovely place for some solitude and peace & quiet. The views on the summit are fantastic for such an mundane grassy hill. On a good day you can see the hills of Ben Nevis, Grey Corries, Glencoe and Ben Alder as well as the finest view of Rannoch Moor.
