Tr Knoydart part 2, the road to Glen Dessarry.
« on: 21:58:38, 17/07/18 »
The day after I'd climbed Ladhar Bheinn turned out to be very wet, so my plan of climbing Meall Buidhe and Luinne Bheinn (Pronounced  Louis Vane) was put on hold. One day in a small tent sitting out bad weather is enough for anyone, so when the next morning didn't look much better I decided to move on.
There's a path that you can use to get between Knoydart and Loch Arkaig this is one of the main route into the area. I was going to follow it as far as the end of Glen Dessarry.


A fearsome beastie I met on the way.

Once I'd crossed the River Inverie, the route goes up Gleann Meadail following a well graded footpath.

I think this is due to the Bracken Spours, my eyes were very puffed up and itchy. 

Looking back down Gleann Meadail.

Sgurr na Ciche, really remote and difficult to get to, and very scrambly once you do.

Sgurr na Ciche and Ben Aden.


At the head of Gleann Meadail is the bealach of Mam Meadail, looking from here down on the ruins of Carnoch and the River Carnoch.

The old foot bridge is no more.

Looks alright to me :o

maybe not.


Another hairy monster.


There are plans afoot to replace the bridge, but the pace of the planning department is not a fast one.



Sourlies Bay at the head of Loch Nevis, the bothy is just out of sight behind the rocks on the left.

The way into Glen Dessarry.

Camp life, filtering water. All camps should have a bolder like this one.

Charging the camera batteries, who says solar panels don't work in Scotland?

My camp for the night by Lochan a Mhaim in upper Glen Dessarry.

Looks as if you had a trip to remember, despite the rain. Wonderful country.
