Oh ho! Someone else out having fun in the NW of Scotland. I’ve just noticed that Andrew GM0UDL has been spotted on GM/WS034 Sgurr na Ciche. Now Sgurr na Ciche is a proper mountain. Ask a wee bairn to draw a mountain and they draw Sgurr na Ciche, it’s a classic cone shape. It’s a rugged climb in another of the fantastic bits of Scotland. Bordering on the edge of the Knoydart peninsula, the last true remaining wilderness in the UK as there are no roads there, Sgurr na Ciche stands proud. It’s the 25th most prominent peak in the UK. Just getting there is a challenge… drive to Spean Bridge then drive 35kms along a narrow single track road by Loch Arkaig, park at tiny parking area at the dead end having passed nothing and nobody, then walk at least 11kms to the summit and climb about 1200m. It’s down hill the way back but still 11kms and then there’s the drive back to civilisation.
To Andrew, respect!
