About this event
Beinn Sgulaird, located at the head of Loch Creran in Appin, is a solitary Munro and is well known for offering some of the finest summit views in the whole of Scotland. Perhaps the finest views are to the west towards the islands of Mull, Jura and beyond. With a sea-level start, and three distinct tops to negotiate, a reasonable amount of effort is needed to reap the rewards. Our route starts off fairly gradually on a track up through the glen, before striking off uphill more steeply. As height is gained, so the terrain becomes more rough and rocky but if the rocks are buried under snow, this section is actually easier than in summer conditions when negotiating the boulders is quite tricky. A small amount of descent and re-ascent is needed as we pass over two intervening summits, including the Top of Meall Garbh, but for all your efforts, the rooftop summit views more than make up for it. The quickest route back down follows our route of ascent but there is one alternative where, depending on snow conditions, we might be able to gracefully bum-slide on the snow, speeding things up further!
