Some good hill running this week…..

On Tuesday night first up I had planned a run from Luib through Strath Beag, to meet the ‘Elgol Road’ then to run back to Luib via Strath Mor. I have to say it has the makings of a great run/walk route, but for the discontinuous sections of path in Strath Mor. One minute the path is great – next it is really boggy, (and i don’t say this lightly!) Still a great route and I will do it again with my camera, maybe in Autumn.

Today (Thursday), in the evening I made the time to go out for a few hours. My route was to be the Beinn Deargs ‘loop’ from Sligachan. So this climbs Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach, then on to Beinn Dearg Mhor. The descent after this summit is the crux with some steep scree, and bouldery, to reach the Bealach na Sgairde, which is directly below Glamaig. The evening was very warm and most of the water had dried up – the dog had to make do with boggy peat water 😦 until we reached the flowing burns after a couple hours. A perfect evening with really clear air, and a gentle easterly breeze. A ‘classic’ in my book worthy of 3 stars.
