Eeeach on Beinn Each!

Route: Beinn Each from Loch Lubnaig

Corbetts: Beinn Each

Date walked: 22/10/2021

Time taken: 4.5 hours

Distance: 12km

Ascent: 750m

This is a lovely walk. I chose Beinn Each as I was walking solo and it seemed straight forward as I am wary hill walking on my own. Got parked no problem at the suggested lay-by, however, I imagine that parking may be difficult if you go at the weekend. The walk begins by going up the side of a house which is being renovated just now. Then into woodlands. Some trees have fallen over the path but all were easily negotiated. The path is easy to follow and continues up through the forest until you come to a forest road. There is ongoing forestry work so this means that the forestry road, after the recent rain, is muddy, very muddy! Hence the reason for the title! And it’s very clatty mud. There is a little detour to avoid the log stacks but this is fine as it takes you off the muddy road.
Further along the signpost points to Beinn Each path.
The path is straight up and quite steep initially but then it meanders it’s way and the going is easier. Cracking views through Glen Ample towards Lochearnhead. The autumnal colours are at their best now. The wind picked up as I neared the top and it got quite cold too. The rocky summit came into view at last. Stuc a’Chroin dominates as it is close. There were several rutting deer heard but not seen! A few photos taken then time to get out of the cold wind and head down.
