Rueval, Benbecula

Route: Rueval (Ruabhal), Benbecula

Date walked: 10/09/2010

Distance: 3.5km

This is not the most exciting walk report you will have read. But i feel like the Outer Hebrides have to have more reports linked to the walk descriptions, so here goes.

Continuing on our way up the islands, we stayed the night in Benbecula at a nice wee B&B. Mr and Mrs Maclean were amazing.

She made this for us, each.

The wind started to pick up as we were watching the re-run of the Xtra Factor, but we decided to tackle the only hill on the island, Rueval.

We walked down an uninteresting road, for what seemed like ages. It felt even longer on the way back.





Just before the hill is an ugly landfill site. Just here the rain started, so it was on with the waterproofs.






Unfortunately we couldn’t see much. There were loads of wee lochs everywhere; it was a very strange sight.


I actually really enjoyed doing this. When we got back, we even managed to catch more of the Xtra Factor, which Sarah was delighted about.
