Beinn nan Gudairean & Tobar Fuar beach

Distance on Scalasaig hill walk: 5km; Distance on Tobar Fuar beach: 1.5km; with Lynsey & Isabel
See route in new window

This morning we headed out on a walk in the hills around Scalasaig with Isabel in the rucksack. We followed the track behind our accommodation up into the hills. We soon reached the very windy summit of Beinn nan Gudairean where we briefly admired the view before descending to get out of the wind. We followed the track to the north to join the road, which we followed back into Scalasaig, with good views across to Jura.

Whilst Isabel was napping after lunch, I nipped up to the monument on a hill above Scalasaig from where there were good views, although it was quite wet and windy.  Later that afternoon after it had dried up, we all headed to the west coast for a brief amble around Tobar Fuar beach, where there were lots of mysterious slate cairns on some of the rocky outcrops on the shore.  We returned to our accommodation and shortly before dusk, I nipped back up to the monument to admire the sunset and the views across to Jura and Islay.
