Mull Pick and Mix part 5. Sgurr Dearg. June 2012.

Date: Thursday 7th June 2012
Distance: 4.8km
Ascent: 635m

Having been up Corra Bheinn we drove along to Sgurr Dearg, a Graham nestled in to the south of Dun da Gaoithe.

Parked at the head of a track at NM 651 325. Another highly imaginative route – head up to the top of the hill and then back again.

Perhaps should have called these the Mull “Grand Old Duke of York” walks. 😉

In essence we walked up Coire nan Each – easy terrain with a few deer around.

Back to Ben Buie:

The summit ridge – Loch Spelve and the Firth of Lorn:

Loch Linnhe and Lismore:

Over the Connel Bridge to Beinn Duirinnis – the inverse view from a few months ago:

The Dun da Gaoithe transmitter and Lismore.

The Skye hills laid out in a line from the Cuillin to the Broadford Grahams:

The rather intriguing NW ridge of Dun da Gaoithe – a traverse from Salen to Craignure whets the appetite:

The ferry, Duart Castle and the lighthouse:

Another excellent viewpoint – I wasn’t really sure which one I liked best.
