Join us for the first of two mountain walks in the beautiful Glen Creran area of Argyll.

Saturday's walk will take us up Beinn Sgulaird (937m) - a solitary Munro climbed from almost sea level with some relatively straightforward scrambling along the way. With its multiple tops we'll be very glad when we finally see that summit cairn!

Flanked by Glen Creran to the NW and Glen Etive to the SE, its commanding position overlooking Loch Linnhe and the Firth of Lorn will afford some fine views of the islands of Lismore and Mull as well as a less than usual aspect of the Glencoe mountains.

Why not make a weekend of it and join us on Sunday too to climb its north-eastern neighbour Beinn Fhionnlaidh? There are a number of campsites or B&Bs along the coastal stretch between Connel and Ballachulish or youth hostels slightly further afield in Oban and Glencoe.
