Suilven

Grahams: Suilven

Date walked: 28/05/2021

Time taken: 8 hours

Distance: 22km

Ascent: 1000m

Graham Smith and I headed off and arrived at Glencanisp as the sun came out, we soon met Brian Stalker and Sam the dog and headed off along the track, past Suileag bothy and on to the path junction for Suilven. Steady height gain along the much improved path, and a break to take in the view of the rock wall ahead, then time for the steep climb onto the ridge. The stone wall on the ridge is incredible and useless, continued on to the summit, the views were outstanding. Spent so long sitting in the sun at the west end of the ridge we did not have time to try the east summit so just plodded back to the car , enjoying a couple of srtops along the way to cool down in rivers and lochs.
