15th – 17th June 2018 – Island of Rum

Map 39, Grid Ref 411991
Askival and Ainshaval are two Corbetts and the only Graham is Trollabhal 702mtrs. A great round of the Rum Cuillinis worthy when staying over and not catching a ferry back. Only one vechicle track from Kinloch near the pier. Beautiful Kinloch Castle has a great history worthy of a read up on the internet the !st Scottish Castle with water for electricity to be lit this way. Views from the top to Mull, Eigg and Canna.

Enough Munros to keep anyone going in a day on either side of the pass with a great high start and a couple or three Corbetts for those heading down that route, Grahams too are not far off. Either a bike to return to the start along the Sustrans route through the pass or a bit of a car shuttle is required. The four on the west sid, Sgairneach Mhor, Beinn Udlamain, A’Mharconaich & Gael – Charnare easily done in a day. Its a bit harder to string the three on the east side. A’Bhuidheanach. Bheag, Carn na Caim and Meall chuaich together but it might be worth a try despite the long walk out from the last along the A9.
