I was staying in Badenscallie I wanted to walk from the house a circular route taking in Ben Mor Coigach and Fhidhleir. On the approach I walked the coastal path along Badenscallie beach over the cliff path past Achduart dropping below Culnacraig before the assent. I would return from Fhidhleir on the road back to Badenscallie. It was a great September day Sunshine with perfect visibility for the duration. The total distance was 13.1 miles roughly 7 of which were accumulated on the walk in and out from Badenscallie.
