A fine walk up Beinn a'Bheithir and its 2 Munros. A difficult, pathless start from ballachulish soon led to a defined path to the summits. The mountain seemed to split the weather with low cloud and rain in Glencoe to the East and sunshine to the West. Great views to the South and West as far as the Cuillins, Mull, Lismore, Kerrera and the Paps of Jura.

a 7 1/2 hour day rounded off with soup, chips and a pint in The Clachaig.

A short video below shot with drone from the walk:

Fantastic, good video.
I'm keeping an eye on the weather for Wednesday for these 2.

Agreed, a great little video thanks. Hoping to do these as well, next week on way to meet - weather gods permitting as the views deserve a great day by looks of things.
