Carn Sgulain, A'Chailleach and Carn Dearg

Date: 22/06/2008
Height: 838m
Distance: 24 Km
Grid: NH68100420 (A'Chailleach), NH68400590 (Carn Sgulain), NH63500240 (Carn Dearg)
Companions: Dougie
Weather: Cloudy, raining with poor visibility

From the car park on the road, we followed the track over the rickety old footbridge and then along the path to a small hut where we stopped for a brew. The weather was pretty poor at this stage and another party in the hut were turning back.

After a quick brew we headed across the open hillside to the summit of A’Chailleach. From this summit there was some tricky route finding (in the poor weather) as we descended into the glen and then Northwards to the summit of Carn Sgulain.

The route from the summit of Carn Sgulain was to follow a line of fence posts over Carn Ban and then on to the summit of Carn Dearg.

To return we descended South and then South East and then followed the river to Dallballoch and then a good path / track back to the car.

Given the weather the day could have been better – bit of a trudge all in all.
