North side of Glen Sheil

Date: 27/05/2005
Height: No record
Distance: 15 Km
Grid: NH03501430 (Sgurr a'Bhealaich Dh), NH06201660 (Ciste Dhubh), NH01801480 (Saileag), NH04901370 (Aonach Meadhoin)
Companions: Dougie
Weather: Overcast, but all the tops were clear.

This is the 4 munros  on the North side of Glen Sheil, to the West of the path to Glen Affric.

We started by following the path that goes to Glen Affric, from Glen Sheil, for about 3 or 4 Km, then we struck directly towards Bealach a’Choinich and then North to the summit.
On the summit we had excellent views of all the surrounding tops – the Five Sisters and Ben Attow.

We then headed back to the bealach and on towards Aonach Meadhoin. This was directly up steep slopes to meet a fairly good path halfway up that lead us to the summit.

Continued on the path to the summit of Sgurr a’Bhealaich Dheirg where we stopped for lunch. Again, excellent views all around and down into a very rugged looking corrie.

The path then took us on to the final summit of the day, Saileag.

To descend we headed back to the bealach and then down very steeply to the road.
