Beinn Dearg Loop and the ‘famine’ wall
The highest peak in the Northern Highlands, Beinn Dearg is a fine big nugget of a hill, dominating views south-east from Ullapool.
This walk takes you up the beautiful Glen Sguaib to the famous Beinn Dearg and our return follows the west flank along a wonderful ridge. This is the shortest way up and down this grand mountain.
A great drystone wall runs from the bealach up the eastern flank of Beinn Dearg, over the summit plateau and down the long west ridge.
It’s a phenomenal piece of engineering, constructed from blocks of stone and, in places, is almost two metres (6ft) tall.
It’s known as a “famine wall” and is part of the often sad history of the people who once scraped a living in the shadow of the hills where today so many spend their leisure time.
Walk details: 12.3 miles, 20 km – Ascent 1066 m, Descent 1066 m – Walking time 7 h
Beinn Alligin Circuit
Beinn Alligin means the Mountain of Beauty in Gaelic – and is well named. This is the easiest of the three famous Torridon ridge traverses, but if the Horns are included it still gives some airy scrambling.
Walk details: 6.25 miles, 10 km – Ascent 1110 m, Descent 1110 m – Walking time 6.5 – 7.5 h
Ben More Assynt & Conival
