It was another beautiful sunny day when we set off up A’Mhaighdean at about 8am. This was a very pleasant climb with spectacular views all round, especially across to Torridon. And then the view from the summit! Nothing can prepare you for the view from the summit. Absolutely brilliant. But looking across to Ruadh Stac Mor we could not imagine how we were going to get up there. The crags looked impenetrable. The path however led to the bottom of a slanting rocky path (rather loose!) up which we scrambled and then made our way over boulders to the trig point. Two Munros done before 10.30am! All downhill from here! But with creaking knees there was a huge boulder field to cross to reach the twin lochans below. We made our way across to the path at Clach na Fritheallaidh and then on down to Loch Beinn Dearg. The going was then much easier in the hot sun and we crossed the burn at Larechantivore, made our way across the strath and crossed the Abhainn Srath na Sealga to reach Shenavall. The river crossings were all very easy due to lack of rain. In my celebrations on Ruadh Stac Mor I had forgotten the uphill slog from Shenavall, past An Teallach (the only An Teallach I wanted at this stage came in a pint glass!) again and finally downhill to Corrie Hallie.
I found this a very tough and challenging expedition but worth every minute of the effort involved. I never would have managed it without all that training though.

As concise an argument for splitting the six as I've ever seen written.
Climb from Carmore and this view evolves.
