A fantastic walk with my daughter who had not seen the West Coast in all its beauty
The link above is to a short YouTube video that describes the walk better than words can
Clegg's were busy and hungry but nothing could take away from the stunning scenery
Thanks to walk highlands for the route, the resource and the others that report making for a pleasurable day

Brilliant . What a fab video 🙌🏻 :clap:
The drone shots of you sat up on the ridge are 👌
A couple of days earlier I was on the 2 Corbetts (Beinn Dearg mor & Beinn Dearg bheag) on the other side of Loch na Sealga - also getting brutally attacked by clegs :?

Excellent video 👍 Thoroughly enjoyed it, particularly the drone footage of your lunch stop. You've clearly got a talent for these things but I'm sure a lot of work went into the finished product too. Some great family memories for you both. Well done. :clap: :clap:

Great video I was climbing the Fannichs that week and clegs were a nightmare any time you stopped :clap:

Wonderful place, great vid. Like others, I find the summit drone pics brilliant.

I was on An Teallach the week before in similar weather, but I don't think I could have got any pic with only one clegg on it!!!

I despatched 110 to the eternal fires of clegg hell between midday the previous day, and about 17.00 the day I walked An Teallach - and I must have missed just as many. I didn't think to try the clegg dance though.... :D
