I stayed Poolewe to tackle Beinn Lair.
As expected, whether was fine to do.
MTB riding first as usual, however, my legs were a little bit tired to ride MTB due to the Baosbheinn hike the day before.
I wondered how long I could, but decided to finish MTB ride at Karnsary Lodge .... as same as before.
I knew the route was very long... flat path up and down for 2hrs at least, but the view was impressed me and I did not feel boring !!!


It took 2hrs on foot to reach a division to Beinn Lair, and the path was very clear. So just " follow the tiny path".

40min to reach to Bealach Mheinnidh and I could now see Loch Maree.
From here, I could not see a path to the Summit, but the route was clear... just head East UP.
On the ascend way, the view to the Valley was beautiful.... interesting rock formation.

Just keep Up, Up,and Up.
From 830m point, finally I could see great view... I could not stop taking photos...



Now I had to reach to the Summit of Beinn Lair.
Probably just 10min walk to get there.
The view towards to Fisherfield was fine, but ..... Fionn Loch was much much much impressed me.

Now just noon time, clouds were increased gradually.
I did not want to leave there, but the time to return the same route.
In order to get those beautiful views, it was worth to spend a time and effort of long walk !!!
