I had heard mixed accounts from others who had climbed Ben More Assynt ranging from "it's hard-going", "it's long and wet under-foot" and "oh, there's a mini aonach eagach on that one". Make your own mind up if you think Valerie and I enjoyed this day out in the mountains?
Driving up from our base at Dornie near Achiltibuie I was awe-struck by the splendour once again of this amazing area north of Ullapool. The Coigach, Stac Pollaidh, Cul Mor, Suilven and Quinag all nearly had me parking up early and changing my plan, but Inchnadamph with Conival and Ben More Assynt was our challenge today, so I kept the motor running savouring the drive up through Lochinver and round Loch Assynt to our starting point. With 7 or 8 kilometres to go in the car I could see the Inchnadamph Forest area in the cloud! I temporarily longed to return to the area behind us of glorious Grahams and Corbetts, but the wee wife insisted on sticking to the plan...hehehehehe
Hope you enjoy these photos......
