Beinn Mhanach dry feet?

Beinn Mhanach dry feet?


Postby Fairweather Softie » Wed May 03, 2017 2:46 pm

Hi,

Has anyone been recently, just wondering if my feet have any chance of staying dry with recent good weather, think you need to cross the river 6 times on the round trip.

A very good chance I would say: river levels around Crianlarich were pretty low last Sunday.

You can always go from Glen Lyon. There is a river crossing but it's very shallow.

Or from Achallader: options to make an interesting round with Beinn Achaladair and/or Beinn a' Chreachain. There is a reasonable path connecting the Dothaidh/Achaladair and Achaladair/Mhanach cols.

Should have mentioned that going this way you can visit Tigh nam Bodach too and that the track from the dam to the river crossing is easy cycling.

7 on the way in, 7 out.
Your feet should stay dry no probs.



If you're an Olympic long jumper :D

Thanks all, will have a look at Glen Lyon, failing that I will get some practise in for the long jump as suggested. 8)

If the forecast stays the same might leave it and go further afield

I went the Glen Lyon way. It was a good circuit. Took the bike along the length of the loch.
Would recommend it.

If you are walking in Gleann Achadh-innis Chailein you are not going to have a problem for the next week or so. Dry as.

We did this one in April a couple of years ago from Auch, didn't have any problems with the river crossings. I wouldn't expect any problems there at the moment.
