Walk done on Sun 20 May 2012
Beinn a Chlaidheimh in the foreground, the snowcapped hill further away is Sgurr Ban.
Looking along the track once it levels out.
I met 2 chaps walking in the Cape Wrath Trail which runs from Fort William to Cape Wrath using the glens and paths for the trail Link to Walkhighlands Blog
One was from Lands End and had been unable to get across one of the burns near Sourlies Bothy, Knoydart after what he said had been the worst rain he had ever seen in his life, he walked up the track from Achneigie without needing to stop to catch his breath ( not a thing I can do anyway ), he had pitched his tent at the far end of Loch a Nid the previous night, the second chap had camped at the ruins at Feanasheen ( just round the corner and on the path to Loch a Bhraoin and had walked in from Kinlochewe the previous day, they were stunned by the hills and the remoteness of the area.

Beinn a Chlaideimh is getting closer
( above ) Once at the top and looking over onto Beinn Dearg Mhor and Loch na Sealga.
( photo above ) looking along the ridge, it's not as bad as it looks.
(above) Loch a Bhrisidh, I walked past it on the way down.
( above) more looking round about, looking over to Achneigie when halfway down.
(above ) once across .
Keep following the path.
The layby at Corrie Hallie with 12 cars parked at the roadside at 10pm when I came out after leaving my car at 8am ( home by 10.30pm a bit stiff to say the least ! ), I guess Shenavall would have been busy as there was only one tent at Achneigie.
It was 2pm by the time I got to the snowy ridge at the top of Beinn a Chlaidheimh, but I did get a sore knee on the way up, I blame the rucksack for the weight .
