Kintail Bookends

Guided Munro-bagging days in the Western Highlands

At either end of the Kintail Brothers and Sisters there is superb hiking and ridge-walking to be enjoyed. At the western end, A'Ghlas Bheinn's spurs reach down to the glen below resembling the fingers of a hand and Beinn Fhada is tucked behind, teasing us with glimses of it's narrow ridge on Sgurr a'Coire Ghairbh. To the east, the Munros north of Loch Cluanie rise above lonely Ceannacroc Forest and are connected by wild spurs. We're on these superb ranges for 2 days of guided hiking to reach the summits and enjoy the fine views.
