A grand cirque of the Glen Oykel horseshoe over the peaks of Ben More Assynt, Conival and Breabag.
26th & 27th May 2012 Ben More Assynt, Conival & Breabag (Assynt)
Another fantastic backpacking trip Paul. A superb collection of photos and some really useful notes on terrain and routes.
Cheers Nick, I really like Sutherland, a great area with some really superb hills. Enjoyed Ben More and Conival from Inchnadamph but found this route even better.
It looks great. I received Dan Bailey’s new book “Great Mountain Days in Scotland” a few days ago and a route very similar to this is included.
I must admit that I got the basic idea from the Cicerone guide ‘Walking in Scotland’s Far North’.
Stunning stuff Paul. Very envious of the fact that you can visit this area in a weekend. It is pretty much a 2 day drive either way for me. The amount of times I have nearly trod on an adder, wary of taking Reuben into adder country in the summer as he would soon stick his nose where it should not be!
I must admit 4 hours sounds much better than a couple of days James.
Almost managed to pick an adder up once thinking it was a nicely marked stick, was a bit shocked when I was greeted with a hiss!
Simply magnificent, and that pitch looks idyllic. Moving it a couple of hundred miles south would be nice…
My newsreader seemed to be playing up recently, I just discovered that your feed disappeared along with a few others – I thought it was a while since I saw a report.
Thanks Geoff, this is a route I had in mind for a little while. It was a lovely place to camp and the stiff breeze kept away the midges!
