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

Sunday's walk will be a more straightforward ascent of Beinn Fhionnlaidh (959m) - a long, broad ridge running west to east between Glen Creran and Glen Etive.

It can be climbed from either of these glens, but we will be following the easier and less forested route from the head of Glen Creran and hopefully be rewarded with some fine views of the neighbouring Glen Coe and Glen Etive mountains.

Why not make a weekend of it and join us on Saturday too to climb its south-western neighbour Beinn Sgulaird? 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.

Micro Events – IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
  • All are required to practice social distancing – staying 2m (not 1m) apart at all times, including the lunch stop.
  • Please join events within around one hour’s travel from your home, rather than travelling longer distances to get there.
  • Unfortunately, there won’t be any planned pub / café stops en route or at the end, and please don’t share sweets or snacks with others – we’re sorry!
  • Public transport use to the start point is discouraged, as this is a non-essential journey. No car sharing to the start point unfortunately either.
  • Please bring your own hand sanitising gel for your own use throughout the day. Use of face coverings is at your own choice.
  • Each person can only attend one OutdoorLads micro event a week. (Leaders to leave at least three days between events they lead.)
  • On walks, one person to hold open gates and allow everyone to walk through – so minimising surfaces that multiple people touch. 
  • Be aware that opportunities for toilet stops may be minimal if facilities are closed.
  • Please, please cancel at your earliest opportunity if you are unable to attend or are unwell, so that we can allow others to take up these valuable event spaces.
  • Much as it's difficult - no handshakes or hugs!
