Another wander around Abriachan

Date walked: 26/09/2021

Time taken: 1.45 hours

Distance: 5.05km

Ascent: 147m

Another short stroll that we thought would be a good idea (that in hindsight probably wasn't) - we drove to the top car park at Abriachan to avoid as much ascent as possible and set off along the easy track

I think these see-saws were designed for mountain bikers but they were quite amusing to walk over


Through the trees we could see some hills - I think this is Carn a' Bhodaich

People and a tee-pee (we stayed away - eww people :shock: )

Before long we were away from the busier areas and onto a smaller path that started climbing gently-ish (I thought the whole point of the walk was to avoid ascent, but :crazy: )

We started to clear the top of the trees and get some more views

Showers travelling along the Beauly firth towards Inverness - normally we would be happy that they were avoiding us, but unfortunately Malky had left the washing out in the garden :lol:

Rainbow ahead!

Think this might be the Strathfarrar hills in the sun

Once out in the open the path improved and flattened out to lead us to a weird load of decorated wooden stakes. Several were standing but there were also a few lying on the ground, victims of wind probably

It was a short distance to the actual summit of Carn na LeitreImage

Looking back - the silhouette of Meall Fuar-Mhonaidh very prominent

Loch Ness just visible with the Strathnairn marilyns appearing behind

Not my finest effort :lol:

I was really tired so we had a good sit down - there was shelter available behind the cairn fortunately. We had thought to extend the walk but decided against it. I did fall for Malky's "well if we go a different way it's not any longer" spiel yet again though :roll:

Lovely views (possibly Strathfarrar direction)

After a good long break I felt a little better

We took a smaller path off which led us around the back of the hill

There were lots of wood carvings - we wandered if this was a word search

We soon dropped onto the Great Glen Way. It wasn't a difficult walk back to the car but I was pretty knackered

The pretty birds signalled the car was near...

Back at the car park all the people had gone, so I had a nice relaxing lie down on the big swing (until Malky started pushing it too hard :roll: ) and we went home for a nap.
