Loch Awe – Meall Diamhain – Canisp – Loch Awe

With its beautifully melodic name and sleek outline, Canisp was a hill I’d been wanting to do for ages. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great and I had little views from 300m upwards. Shame really as I’d read much about the outlook to Suilven and beyond. Didn’t hang about on top. Just a quick lunch in the larger of the 2 windshelters and back down again. Descent took a freer route east avoiding a repeat of Meall Diamhain and picking my way through rocky outcrops and heather. Didn’t see anybody else from beginning to end. Strange hill – no sheep, no birds, nothing. One for a repeat in better weather if I get the opportunity.
