A'Ghlas-bheinn & Beinn Fhada from Morvich. In my opinion,the best viewpoint in Kintail,magnificent panorama.

Vanessa is still there, spider still open, views still extensive. And cold.

My Munro #99 climbed alone. This was my 100th Munro until Sgurr nan Ceannaichean got demoted - thus ruining my 100th Munro being the 100th ranked Munro numbers obsession! A funny thing happened on the way to the top...could have been not funny at all as I was on my own, but lost my footing crossing a sheet of ice...see photo...this was only about halfway up, but I got to the summit in thick clag (and probably in a state of concussion). In very limited visibility I'd not been so relieved at finding the TP, and on the large, featureless summit plateau even more relieved that I was able to safely navigate myself back the way I'd come. Score given for Beinn Fhada providing a memorable adventure rather than any views...

Ouch! What happened on the way up...

Walked up from Morvich via Sgurr a Choire Ghairbh and Meall an Fhuarain Mhoir. Mist cleared as I reached the summit. Returned via Sgurr a'Dubh Doire and Gleann Lichd on a delightful path.

Brilliant views in all directions. The sheer scale of recognisable peaks was stunning. Top day. A Vanessa in good nick but plug missing.

No record of FB. The day was memorable for the thick mist on the west side, with fair weather on the east, and a clear divide on the watershed.

A vanessa. Done on a hideous day, involving roped burn crossings. There have been two trigs here, dont know which one was up in 1980. Number originally 9810, now 11808. Numbers from trigonomy db/OS
