About the event:

I'm often asked which is my favourite Munro. The truth is I don't have one. The weather, season, company etc can all have an effect on your enjoyment of any particular Munro. However, one of my favourite circuits is Beinn Liath Mor and Sgorr Ruadh from Glen Carron. The Munros themselves are spectacularly diverse both in vegetation and rock type with their own challenges which by themselves gives a truly rewarding and full day out.


Sgorr Ruadh approach takes you through a maze of lumps, bumps and squelchy ground. Descending to the first col involves a few steep and rough sections and then a scramble up to get around a lump which separates these two magnificent mountains.


Beinn Liath Mhor is absolutely sublime. It glows in the right light. A wonderful undulating ridge takes you back with two further lower summits. On a good day you have the entire panorama of the Torridon giants that dominate the views North - Beinn Alligin, Liathach and Beinn Eighe.


What's even better is you can get the train directly to Achnashellach Station where the walk starts.


The third Munro - Maol Chean-dearg sits apart from these two and is perhaps more Torridonian in character - far rockier than the more eastern pair. The approach is far more alpine and can be wonderful in spring on a good day.
