Walking in the Beinn Dearg hills 24th March 2011

Track from Inverlael to Beinn Dearg hills.

The Beinn Dearg hills offer great walking on stalkers paths and their close proximity means that you can choose however many to climb in a day. On 24th March 2011 with the help of a willing driver, we climbed the four in the Beinn Dearg group and finished on Am Faochagach, a hill viewed by many as a boggy trudge!

The forestry track from Inverlael finishes as the trees make way for open ground and a decent stalkers path. It really struck me that on closing the forest gate, you are leaving behind man made influences and entering real wilderness.

Although the weather was mixed, we enjoyed a super day on the hills, seeing as far as some of our favourites - Stac Pollaidh, An Teallach and Seana Braigh providing marvellous three sixty views.
