Event Description

Sunday 23rd December Map 40, NM873816 Glenfinnan Sgurr an Utha (796m, Corbett) — peak of the udder, Fraoch-bheinn (790m, Corbett Top) — heather hill.
A steep but short day on this accessible Corbett, on the summit of which garnets may be found. Good views in all directions of a rugged and varied landscape. Start from the lay-by on the S side of the A830 just W of the bridge over the Allt an Utha, NM873816. Cross the bridge to the start of a forestry track and follow it NW to a junction just before a bridge over Allt an Utha NM872823. Turn E and follow the steep ATV track up to its end at NM880826. Continue E up the open slope to reach the level spur of Druim na Brein-choille, whence there are excellent views along Loch Eil. Head NNE along the spur and up until the terrain levels again at about 730m altitude. Turn NNW and head directly for the col between Sgurr an Utha and Fraoch-bheinn, 735m. Climb W up to the summit of Sgurr an Utha. Return to the col and walk E up to the summit of Fraoch-bheinn. Descend SE to Tom na h-Aire, then SSW down to Glenfinnan Station. (9km, 750m ascent)
