Ascending Ben More Coigach North West Scotland

Ascending Ben More Coigach, North West Scotland.

Another great day in September climbing the seven peaks of Coigach including the Grahams of Ben More Coigach and Sgurr an Fhidhleir. We started from Culnacraig and after a short distance on the coastal path, climbed steeply to the top of Garbh Choireachan. From there a delightful ridge walk led us to the summit of Ben More Coigach. The short hop over to Speicein Coinnich gives delightful views of the ridge itself as well as some of the other unique mountains in this area in the North West Highlands of Scotland.

From there a short drop and ascent leads to one of the most dramatic clifftops in Scotland, the summit of Sgurr an Fhidhleir, a wonderful viewpoint. More ridge walking over another two tops brought us to the final summit of the day, Cairn Conmheall, overlooking the Summer Isles and the special village of Achiltibuie.

Another wonderful September day in the North West Highlands of Scotland.

Very nice. I've never been up the top. How long did it take you?
