Baosbheinn is normally described with a N approach down the Poca Buidhe Bothy track. We fancied an approach from the south starting at the Coire Mhic Nobuil car park and weaving through the Torridonian giants.
The track carries on through the Bealach a Chomhla pass between Beinn Alligin and Beinn Dearg (it carries on round the north side of Beinn Alligin where a grassy ramp leads up to Sgurr Mor). Baosbheinn appears:
Having seen no-one all day just as we reached here a friendly face peered over checking he was on the true summit having approached from the N.
We were interested in the views of the Letterewe hills reported by a number of us last month. In particular it’s amazing how bland Beinn Airigh Charr, Meall Meinnidh and Beinn Lair look from this side compared to their really stunning appearance from the N and E.
Some strange atmospherics were brewing – white stuff in the sky obscuring the blue, from memory we reckoned they were… clouds.
Turned for home – the ridge undulations were tiring and the terrain seemed rougher on the return.
This worked out really well but it was relatively rough between the Alligin track and Ceann Beag. We benefitted from the very dry conditions – this would be fairly soggy normally. However I think it gives great changing Torridonian vistas and different views of some of the best Scottish Hills. A grand day out
