The peninsula of Ardmeanach had already been visited on our walk to MacCulloch’s Fossil Tree earlier in the week.
We also fancied a wander over the high ground out this way.
The Marilyn summit of Beinn na Sreine can be easily accessed from the Gleann Seilisdeir road at about NM 45 33 – straight up Creag a Ghaill and over Beinn na h-Iolaire (2.7km and 400m ascent).
We went for a longer wander.
Parked at the above GR and followed the cliffline of Creag a Ghaill heading SW out the peninsula.
Strolled out over Meall nan Capull before accessing Creach Bheinn from the east.
Creach Bheinn and Bearraich are probably the best viewpoints on Ardmeanach. We sat up on Creach Bheinn and enjoyed the views, with flypasts by some ravens and one Golden Eagle.
From Creach Bheinn we meandered back over Meall na Capull and over Fionna Mham to access Beinn na Sreinne.
Beinn na Sreinne has nice views down into Gleann Seilideir, but Creach Bheinn is the better place to sit and enjoy the views.
From the summit it was easy enough to wander N over Beinn na h-Iolaire and descend back to the car.
Ardmeanach is somewhere we’ll hopefully get back into – we enjoyed both visits on our holiday.
