This was the first day of our 3 day Knoydart Canoe trip. We had canoed in the previous evening and set up camp at the head of Loch Quioch.IMG_0936

Get got a fairly late start – around 11:30 – and we followed the path up the glen to the bealach and then headed up the SE shoulder to the summit of Luinne Bheinn.

From here we headed SW along the ridge to Meall Buidhe. From this summit we retraced our steps back towards Luinne Bheinn (stopping for a brew and a bit of “bare feet time”).

It was around 10pm by the time we returned to the campsite, just as last light was fading. A pretty exhausting day all in all.
