Event Description

Sunday 16 th September Map 41, NN187622 Kinlochleven Binnein Mor (1130m, Munro) — large peak, Na Gruagaichean (1055m, Munro) — the maidens.
Follow the path from the edge of the car park marked for Loch Eilde Mor. The path climbs steeply through trees and crosses the moor until it eventually reaches a vehicle track. Turn left here very briefly before turning right again to continue in the original direction on another stalkers path. The path crosses a stream and climbs around the southern flank of Sgurr Eilde Beag. Continue on the stalkers path, passing beneath the steep east face and crossing the north flank of Sgurr Eilde Beag before heading up to the ridge in a wide zig-zag. Turn right up the broad ridge to the minor summit at 1062m. From here you can see the ridge running out to Binnein Mor to the north. Follow this ridge northward to reach the summit of Binnein Mor. Return south to the 1062m minor summit. This time, follow the narrowing ridge southwest down to a bealach and then reascend to Na Gruagaichean. From here follow the easier south ridge then descend southwest down rough, pathless ground to return to the track. Turn right along this until a path cutting down on the left leads back down to the woods around the Grey Mare’s Tail, and Kinlochleven. (14km, 1300m ascent)
