Alternative route up the Beinn Dearg 4 Inverlael

Route: Beinn Dearg: the Four Munros circuit

Munros: Beinn Dearg (Ullapool), Cona' Mheall, Eididh nan Clach Geala, Meall nan Ceapraichean

Date walked: 05/07/2014

Time taken: 8.3 hours

Distance: 27.1km

Ascent: 1754m

We seen an interesting gully leading to the ridge of Beinn Dearg the first time we done these 4 so decided to give it a go this time :D Although very steep, it gets you on to the ridge fast and has great views and a great walk alongside destitution wall 8)

Considering it was built in the 1840s (i think :? ) it's in remarkable condition and well worth the effort to get there :D

P.S the stats from the gps are wrong for this walk, and i don't know why :?
