The drive took over 3 hrs, so I started the walk around noon. apart from the first kilometere most of the walk was pathless, rugged, and challenging...but a challenge is good Being running lots recently so the legs felt pretty good and wasn't overly taxing on my energy levels.
I chose this route for solitude, peace and quiet. I was fortunate enough not to see anyone else for all of the walk
Cutting through a field at the start.
Getting higher, views over to An Stac which is the final corbett on this route.
Its quiet a distance to reach the top of Druim Fiaclach but worth it for the views of the 3 corbetts that lie in wait.
Stunning ridge walk heading towards the first Corbett Summit
After a few hours I reached the first summit
Didn't hang about due to high winds so haeaded to the bealach and dumped my rucksack, then ran up to the summit of Ross Bheinn.
Bealach, and looking back to Druim Fiaclach in the far distance.
Views opening up to Western Isles, albeit a bit hazy
Didn't take long before reaching the 2nd Corbett Summit
Ran back down to the bealach. From here it was a steep descent before starting the acent to An Stac, the final Corbett.
Wasn't as steep as looked from a distance and I was soon at the summit. Didn't hang around, just time for a photo of the West Coast
The West Coast
Its a steep craggy pathless descent for most of the way until reaching the ATV track which leads you back to the start. Missed the cut off through the field but enjoyed the alternative route via the river
Back to the car just before darkness fell. I set off home at 9pm and arrived in Glasgow about midnight. A great day out

Ha ha I started in shorts then had to put on running leggings, followed by a hat with floppy ears

Don't pay any attention to malky - it's shorts only, or nothing for him (see the pics of the July WH Meet in the scrapbook that Jelena just posted if you're in any doubt on this.... ).
