IMG_3530From the valley a quick walk up to the main valley where you can see the round of the mountains appear (see above) A great clear day and as i approached the first main uphill I disturbed a recently arrived flock of fieldfares which were eating the last of the cow and crowberries.


IMG_3532.JPGIMG_3531.JPGQuite a lot of scree and some easy scrambling to the summit of Beinn Liath Mhor.




And good views out over Torridon and to the immense Liathach.






Then an unexpected scramble down to the belach between tow munros of the day but giving fine views back to Beinn Liath Mhor.

Once on the main track it was a steady decent with a knee deep wade across the River Lair and back down to the red telephone box at Achnashellach station.
