Date: 17th August 2019
Saturday 17th August 2019 a level 3 walk with some mild scrambling across the rocky ridge where hands may be required, in the magical area of Kintail. Meeting at 0830 in the Jac-O-Bite restaurant car park, Ault-a-chruinn, Kyle of Lochalsh, IV40 8HN. (I believe the restaurant is currently closed down) We will leave a vehicle here at the end point before driving up the Glen together to our start point.
We will ascend steeply, direct from the roadside, up to the Bealach an Lapan then head west. Each of the three main summits we encounter are Munros, Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe, Sgurr na Carnach and Sgurr Fhuaran. The remaining two summits make up the five sisters but these tops are not classified as Munros or Corbett. This is a 15km day with 1,400m of ascent and should take us about 8 hours to complete.
Citylink run a direct bus service from both Edinburgh and Glasgow to Portree, both of which pass by the front doors of the Cluanie Inn and Kintail Lodge Hotel. If you speak to the driver, they will drop you off and pick you up at both locations. They're very used to walkers using both as a base for Kintail.
Previous clients have stayed at the Cluanie Inn, or at the Kintail Lodge Hotel, Invershiel which also has a Hostel. There is a Scottish Youth Hostel at nearby Rattagan where you can get 10% off your stay if you use my code, King-19. Camping is available at www.shielbridgecaravanpark.co.uk
