A Short walk on a mountain with a long name......

Beinn Liath Mhora’ Ghiubhais Li



A short route not too far from Inverness was required to stretch the legs and so having looked at various options (mainly around Glenshee and Cairngorms), I decided on the above hill (too long to write its title out every time!!) mainly due to the forecast being better further north.

There are not too many reports on this hill so I thought I would write this small description which I’ll keep short. The few descriptions available do describe the hill as being boggy and I will emphasise this fact!!! I had chosen the route from Loch Glascarnoch up over Meall Daimh to the summit thinking that the gain in height would solve the wet boggy ground issue – no such luck!! I would strongly recommend a good pair of waterproof gaiters for this one! With little in the way of paths and lots of wet, peaty tussocky ground the going was perhaps a little uneven at times…..

This report may be painting a bad picture of this hill, however, as boggy as it is, the views were fantastic. I had views over to the Beinn Dearg group and the Fannichs are also nearby and views to them at the summit are great.

For a short outing the views make up for the boggy ground. I left the car at 11.10 and was at the summit for 12.20 without pushing too hard. Was back at the car for one. So a couple of hours should do it for a nice wee walk.
