A two day trip taking in 3 Munros in probably one of the last of the few wilderness areas of the UK.

The first Munro, Beinn a' Chlaidheimh, has since been promoted to Corbett status after a resurvey showed it was only 2998', just short of being a Munro, hence it becomes a real jewel for the connoisseur.

Looking west over Loch a' Bhraoin, the distant hill in the center is Slioch with
Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair's southern top just visible to the right.

6 miles in from the road and my first look at the hills. In the far distance to the left of Loch an Nid
can be seen An Teallach. In the middle of the picture is my first hill Beinn a Chlaidheimh with
Sgurr Ban being the very rocky hill on the far left.

Rather worryingly cloud starts to lower onto Beinn a Chlaidheimh, not what the forecast had promised!
This small beach on Loch an Nid provided an ideal place to rest and wait for the cloud to lift.

A wee Ptarmigan chick, so well camouflaged I walked through the entire brood nearly standing on them, if it had not been for the mother doing the broken wing routine I would have never spotted the young!

Summit cairn of Beinn a Chlaidheimh with An Teallach making an impressive back drop.

Looking down to Loch na Sealga with An Teallach to the right.

Heading south off Beinn a Chlaidheimh towards Sgurr Ban, to its right is Beinn Tarsuinn
withh Slioch being the distant hill.

Wild camping near the top of Sgurr Ban with a magnificent view north to An Teallach.
This picture was taken just after sunset, and it didn't really get much darker than this, over the next
few hours the pink glow on the left moved slowly rightwards until the sun reappeared to
the right of An Teallach.

Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair, note the steep path making its way up on to its northern ridge.
To the right Beinn Tarsuinn with Slioch in the middle distance, beyond can be seen the hills of Torridon.

Looking over the summit cairn of Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair to Beinn Tarsuinn.

P12513.jpg

Looking back to Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair.

w12517.jpg

Heading south east from Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair towards Sgurr Dubh.

w12522.jpg

Looking west towards Slioch with Torridon behind.

p12526.jpg

Looking back to Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair from the top of Sgur Dubh, this is a narrow pinnacled ridge
that is as narrow and exposed as anything else on the mainland

w12538.jpg

Heading down towards Loch an Nid.

w12542.jpg

Looking back up to Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair. This large section of slabs is a spectacular feature and is
worth a visit, could be interesting during periods of torrential rain, the run off is likely to be immense!

p12551.jpg

Looking back up to Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair and Sgurr Ban, further to the right can be seen Beinn a Chlaidheimh
An Teallach and Loch an Nid. The Area of slabs that can be seen is that of the previous two images.

Heading east along the side of Loch a' Bhraoin, Ben Dearg is the big hill in the distance.
