Trip Report Details:
Earlier in the day I climbed Beinn Conchra on the west side of Loch Long. The weather was reasonable despite a hail and sleet shower. On my descent I had good views across the loch to Beinn a’Mheadhoin so decided to add this Sub 2000 Marilyn to my days outing.
From Dornie I drove along the south-east shore of Loch Long, to the hamlet of Bundalloch and parked in the bellmouth at the end of the public road. I then walked across the bridge over the River Glennan and followed a muddy track along the north side of the river. The condition of this track deteriorated due to animals being fed nearby so on finding a section of fence collapsed I crossed it and commenced the ascent of Beinn a’Mheadhoin.
The ground was a mixture of rock and heather and I kept to the highest points where possible. This meant a slight descent to cross the outflow of Loch Dubhach before finally climbing to the summit of Beinn a’Mheadhoin where I had good views of the surrounding mountains.
After lunch I returned to Bundalloch this time avoiding re-ascending any rocky knolls where possible but this did involve crossing short sections of steep terrain.
