Date: Sunday 5th June 2011
Beinn na Callich had originally been planned for a Billy the Boat drop-off at Croulin or Invergeuseran with a walk back to Kinloch Hourn via a Ladhar Bheinn summit camp. With the end of the water taxi a simple loop from Inverie was the plan.
Set off from Inverie on the Inverguseran track we’d walked down the day before, taking the right hand fork almost to Folach before fording the stream to pick up the path heading NE along the Abhainn Beag.
The day was improving and warming up (despite the continued warnings of snow on the hills). The track is reasonable quality and progress is quick.
We followed it to where the OS indicates the track end and then headed due N up a stream tributary to the bealach between Mam Gruamach and Beinn na Callich.
Wandered around the summit area for a while and then had some lunch.
The optimum looking walk for me was a continuation along the broad and reasonably flat summit area of the hill SW to Meall Coire an t-Searraich. Easy walking with the calls of plovers accompanying us all the way.
Picked a line down the slopes of Leathad Mor to the SW towards the bridge over Abhainn Inbhir Ghuiserein at NG 760 048.
Completed the easy descent to the bridge and then picked up the track back to Inverie.
A nice walk – nothing too difficult. The Corbett does have great views out to Skye and the Small Isles.
Well worth the wander. Great to see the fawn.
