Another trip to Fisherfield to get two Corbetts we'd been eyeing up since we first seen them
Beinn Dearg Mor & Bheag and they didn't dissapoint :D

Quite possibly a more scenic route in than from Incheril :?

A big walk on what looks like it was a pretty well perfect day (resolution too small to see the beasties...). :clap: :clap:

Beinn Dearg Mor is right at the top of my list of must do's - it looks just sensational!

No beasties and yes a very big day over a lot of rough ground :shock:

Beinn Dearg Bheag is the better of the two hills though in my opinion 8) and it'd probably be better just taking more time just for the two of them :D

I agree, Beinn Dearg Mor does look sensational, one of the best looking hills in Britain. Of course, mine is the opinion of someone who hasn't climbed either of these Beinn Deargs yet. As you have been on them both, scoob, your opinion that Bheag is even better when you're actually there is worth taking notice of. But I'm sure Alteknacker is justified in being enthusiastic about climbing the big one as well.

Great video, showing the best of those crags and gullies. Been over the Deargs from Shenavall, ascending from the south east and stopping at the 707m top. In 1994. And that makes me feel old. Still, I have in fact been thinking of a return here!

Mor is probably the best looking hill but is only a walk, where as Bheag is a mini An Teallach and a lot more fun, nothing technical but great fun :D
