Yesterday myself and Claire who works for Marine Harvest were up north near the Isle of Skye and Knoydart to walk up Beinn Sgritheall to take some photos. There is a salmon farm in Loch Horn and Claire was required to take some photos of it from the summit at 957 meters. So we spent the morning being driven round the Loch taking photos of the farm from various different angles and then made our way back to Arnisdale. With the way the timings worked out we left the little village at 11am in the heat of the day and started to make our way up the path, luckily following a stream, as the temperature was in the high 20s. We soon made it to the saddle where there was a tiny lochan with lots of life, including newts and headed up the steep slope to the first summit at 907m. Here we got the first glimpse of the views. We made our way along the broad ridge to the summit which we made in just under 3 hours. Here we got the 360 degree view to Knoydart, Skye, Glen Sheil and the western isles.
With the photos taken we made our way back down where the temperature got hotter the closer to sea level we got. And just before 4pm we were back at the village. A hot but good day out, seeing a different part of the highlands. I hope the photos are worth the effort.
