Beinn Bheigier and Glas Bheinn

The hills of Islay may not reach any great height, but they offer a solitude that can match almost any in Scotland. Their rocky upper slopes give superb views, though these must be earned by struggling through some extremely tussocky and tiring terrain lower down.


Outward track wet underfoot; lower slopes of the hills are very boggy and tussocky giving difficult going.
