An excellent day's hill walking on Beinn Nuis, Beinn Tarsuinn and Beinn a'Chliabhain
Distance: 20km; Ascent: 1000m; Mainly dry with occasional sunshine; with Ian C
Ian had got in touch earlier in the week to see if I fancied meeting up for a day on the hills, and I jumped at the chance as it would be nice to have company for the day as I had originally planned to head into the hills on my own for a day. So soon after 10:30 this morning I headed down to the ferry terminal in Brodick to meet Ian who had nipped over from the mainland for the day.
We set off walking at around quarter to eleven, along the pleasant shoreline path next to the golf course before walking out of town on the main road to pick up the minor road up Glen Rosa. After passing the camp site we continued on a broad track up to the bridge over the Garbh Allt, passing a few people on route.
