Ben More Mull

Date walked: 30/04/2011

Time taken: 5 hours

Distance: 9.87km

Ascent: 1741m

Went to Mull on Sat on the 7.30 Ferry from Oban and was picked up by some pals and set off for Ben More we were going to go up by A Chioch but as it turned out desided to go up the tourist path and as it turned out it was the right decision as the wind was against us from the start and made the going very hard dont know what it would have been like on the ridge anyway it made it a very hard day for me and took us 4hrs to get to the top and I must say of the many hills I have been on my legs have never been so sore suppose Iam not as fit as I think but at least I made it had our tea, took some photos and headed down got back to the car in less than two hours arriving back at Craignure the Ferry was an hour late still it was a good day I would like to go back to Ben More and go by way of A Chioch ridge we,ll see.
