Day 2 of 3 in Fisherfield & a very warm one too. Walked from camp spot at Lochan Feith Mhic'-Illean with the Corbett Beinn A'Chaisgein Mor. Superb unobstructed views to the West from this rather remote Graham.

Miserable weather that deteriorated during my trip. I had parked my camper at the carpark at Gruinard bay, caught the (morning) bus round to Corrie Hallie. Ithen walked in past Sheneval and climbed the Deargs (Beinn Dearg Mor being a 2nd ascent). I camped at the col between the 2 Deargs. The forecast had been reasonably good and on this day I had views, however overnight the weather deteriorated and next day it the clag came in but I was committed to continue onto Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor which I did and this was the compleation of my Corbett round. I continued onto the trig on Chaisgein Beag in a increasingly strong wind and no views! The walk out to the van was initially across trackless terrain then I picked up a slippy,rocky path along side Inverianvie River back to my van. Very satisfactory walk which I would like to repeat in better weather!

Square pillar built of cemented rocks. On NW side of summit plateau but not at the highest point. Good views despite hazy grey skies. Nice walk in on path along the Inverianvie river, returned via a challenging crossing of the deep, wide and cold not so 'little' Little Gruinard River. Amazingly met 2 other independent people on the very top of this remote summit.

vgc, stonebuilt, metal cap with wide raised letters. Misty summit, cold wind but turned into an excellent day. Original plan was just this trig, after the ferry from Stornoway but a combination of boat and weather problems saw me back on the mainland early. With an 0630 start from Inverianvie River Bridge (ex G1818 FB) I was at the trig in 3 hours and on Creag-mheall Mor by 1130. With a lot of day left I unfolded the map and realised that the impressive-looking Ruadh Stac Mor was probably doable so I headed there over a string of Sims / Graham Tops then back via 2 more Graham Tops and Beinn Chaisgein Mor - a superb 15 hour, 14 summit, 27 mile day.

Walked from Little Gruinard, with difficult river crossing. Spectacular views of remote hills in one of the most superb areas of Scotland.

a long way in, with bike by the Gruinard river. including a visit to Chaisgein Mor - an 11 hour day. The estate was just building a wooden bothy at 978819, 400 yards from the nearest path. Who is going to use it?
