Thursday afternoon saw me heading to the west coast for a stroll on Quinag, just north of Loch Assynt, the following day. I'd pencilled in just the highest top Sail Gharbh but printed my map to include all 3 corbetts - Sail Gharbh - the rough heel, Sail Ghorm - blue heel, and Spidean Coinich - mossy or boggy peak.

On our way to the Bealach a' Chornaidh
The first part of the path was delightful, smooth gravel and even the usual drains across the path were built with remarkable consideration to walkers knees. Little in the way of obstacles here. The rest of the walk in made up for it thought, getting increasingly rough with a side order of bog.
Lochan Bealach Cornaidh
Steep path to the Sail Gharbh ridge
Bealach a Chornaidh, when it's not in the clag has pretty good views.
Here I turned right and climbed on to the ridge above on a narrow steep path. Tall stone steps were a nuisance but at least I gained height rapidly. Once on the ridge I could see northwards to Sail Ghorm, and the rocky way ENE to Sail Gharbh. There's a path of sorts meandering along the crest of the ridge. I was hoping the clag would clear for a moment as I approached the trig point, but alas.
Heading down was just a matter of returning the same way I came up.
