Tha mi' n dòchas gum bith tha saoghal math oirbh ann na laithean neonach ....

I hope all is good in your world during these strange times and those of you unable to access the hills and glens of the Gàidhealtachd are able to get out in the very near future.

We are fortunate ,very fortunate in our location and have a large variation of options within walking / short driving distance of our home.

On day one of the phasing we took the opportunity to visit a little visited collection of humps and bumps on the Morvern side of Loch Sunart. These are situated between the Strontian -Lochaline road and where Loch Sunart bends to her exit through to the open sea. It is a little visited area with no hills exceeding 550m but height is not everything.

We took the short hop in the car round the loch and parked at the end of the public road. A good track takes you along the loch side past the big house and on round Àirdbeitheach before you leave the shore and up through Glen Laudale on an old cart track.

Before "Na Fuadachan" Laudale was well populated and you can see the remains of past lives everywhere including the ancient graveyard at Cill Mhairi hidden behind the old fank at NM738600 and which few folk are aware exists today.

The route is rough and stoney but good underfoot and continues to climb giving grand views back down to Loch Sunart

With track all the way from sea level to 500m you exit onto Loch a Cèire .......' S e àite brèagha a th' ann agus seallaidh math gu an Iar agus Beinn Iadainn

Loch a Cèire


From Mam a 'Cèire it is a straightforward but undulating wander over to Meall a 'Chaise with many a dip ,hollow and basalt torr to be negotiated above an Coire Dubh. The views for the height of these hills are stunning and the atmosphere one of complete isolation, among peat hags and tiny lochans.

From Meall a Chaise it is around and hour over Tom Aonghais Ruaidh before landing on Beinn Bhann , plenty of interesting rock formations and deep peat scars the landscape

The outlook from Beinn Bhann is grand and completes this circuit which although small in height is challenging enough and gives this little visited horse shoe a round 10/10 in our books

From the summit of Beinn Bhann you head down her shoulder toward an obvious but rough track on the 300m contour which twists its way back down into the glen and your route back out .

An robh sibh riamh ann am Mhorbhairne coisich an slighe seo .... if your ever in Morvern remember height is not everything and this wee horse shoe is definitely worth the effort ! .
