Glas Bheinn and the Traligill Caves from Inchnadamph

Route: Glas Bheinn from Inchnadamph

Corbetts: Glas Bheinn (Assynt)

Date walked: 20/08/2020

Time taken: 5 hours

Distance: 21km

Ascent: 949m

A Walk from Inchnadamph to the summit of Glas Bhenn returning via a detour to visit the Tralgill caves. I Had attempted to do this route earlier in the holiday however it turned very cloudy with extremely poor visibility on the summit plateau. I thought I was at the Summit however when I checked maps/gps later in reality I was about 500 feet away from the summit cairn given the conditions that was as far as I would have gone even if I had been aware this at the time. On a better day the next week back I went to reach the true summit in more favorable conditions. A really nice and varied walk passing lochs with great mountain views at all times. The caves are well worth a visit also either as part of this walk or a walk in itself.
