Today Phil and I went for a walk up Beinn na h-Eaglaise. The weather was once again a bit ‘showery’ and by now the burns and rivers were all pretty boisterous. This meant that my route had to be planned with this in mind. So when we left the B & B of Ferroch the Annat path was followed to a wee valley which led up to two pairs of lochs linked with burns. This exploratory approach was just what the doctor ordered as when the showers cleared we were rewarded with spectacular views such as this one above.
Phil and I had to dig in a bit to reach the summit cairn at 737m as by now the showers were pretty strong. But with a bit of determination we eventually made it after a few of the sneaky little false summits this hill has! Our descent took us down to more lochans on the west slopes and past a rather surreal teapot…
Our final descent back to the Torridon road required more careful route finding down through the pine trees overlooking the raging river which was impassable. We arrived back at Ferroch happy to have shared such a varied day in the hills.
