New campervan trip 25 5th 2019 and Kylesku Hotel 10 - 14 November.
Cold 1°C but very clear day with no wind. Terrain largely frozen.
Biked from Kylesku hotel to the Maldie burn. Left bike by the power station NC251341.
Took a direct line E up very rough terrain to pt. 197. Continued through boggy ground with extensive peat channels. Ascent to Beinn a Ghrianain and onto pt 485. I didn't have enough time to continue to Beinn a Bhutha so I turned at this location. For the return I chose to head for the bridge and dam NC262352 at the head of the Maldie burn.
A good hill day but quite difficult to make decent progress due to the rough ground.
First ascent of Beinn a Bhutha on 10/03/2015. Separate entry for this day.
