Fuar Tholl reviews
The round of Coire Lair from Achnashellach station, taking in Beinn Liath Mhor, Sgorr Ruadh and Fuar Tholl is a classic 9 hour ridgewalk. Easy access in and out by good stalkers paths. Great view... more »
Fuar Tholl is a spectacular mountain - when bathed in sunshine, it glistens. Best viewed from across the sea loch at Attadale more »
Ominous was the drive to Achnashellach & the 3 snow-plows we passed bull-dozing the roads clear, followed by the mutterings in the car-park, as sleet mixed with rain & of non-existent visuals of any surrounding hills. Lol, no other choice then, so onward we all marched, thru the gloom, heading up Coire Earba & If we could at least make the confluence of the paths above the waterfall then perhaps we could swing north-east & meet up with Toni, doing a low-level towards the Tea-House Bothy. As it was the weather Gods smiled. A little. This then set everyone up for aiming higher & towards Loch Coire Lair. And the snow on the trail just got deeper. we then saw a traverse in under Creag Mainnrichean & was then able to top out quite high on the main ridge, as per the pic, with only c.150' to go. But at which point the weather Gods did a mini storm dance. The top was doable, but the risk was high in the descent & was two-fold (1) finding the descent gully access point (wee cornices) & (2) the return via the trail in, would be a complete nightmare, If the wee storm persisted & covered the tracks. The Gods smiled again though, once sufficient height had been lost. Was a Very taxing day but was wonderful feeling of accomplishment ; 50 mtrs short of the summit was, imo, a terrific reflection on IMC in very difficult conditions. Thank you all.
Fuar Tholl is an impressive Corbett 919m, only just missing out on Munro status. The approach has good views of the huge Mainnrichean Buttress and from the summit there are extensive views in all directions. Ascend is 9miles long from road and along railway track. Allow 7 hours in winter condition.
