Overview

We start up the Coire Achaladair to the bealach, traverse and then descend to another bealach before ascending to a col and east to the summit of Beinn Mhanach. We retrace our steps to the last bealach and then ascend Beinn Achaladair. Thereafter it is on to Beinn a Chreachain descending to Crannach Wood and trudging back to the start point from there. Walk time 10 to 11 hours. There is scope for the group splitting at Beinn Achaladair which reduces the time by 1.5 to 2.0 hours. Please book 7 days in advance stating whether you intend to do the longer or shorter walk. This walk may be changed to Sunday 28th July based on the weather forecast.
