Beinn Airigh Charr by Alex37 Beinn Airigh Charr by Alex37
Beinn Airigh Charr lies to the east of Poolewe offering spectacular views over to A'Mhaighdean. It was our first target on our 4 day wild camping trip in The Great Wilderness. Getting to this point was a race against the clock. We left Bristol at 06.00 arriving at Poolewe at 17.40. From there we still had a 7 mile walk and 790m ascent with all our kit for 4 days on our backs. We somehow did it in 3 1/2 hours giving us an hour on the summit to set up our tents and photograph the view. It was a rewarding way to start the trip but the weather and views kept getting better!
incidentally this view from Beinn Airigh Charr shows most of the route to A'Mhaighdean, the mountain which we camped on the following day. It passes stunning lochs before taking you up to some of the most unique and remote landscape in the British Isles.

The view is stunning and dramatic; I love the play of light, color and shadows in all its ruggedness, and the harmony in the lines of the curves. I wonder though
in all this rather bareness, is there any wildlife to be seen in your travels?

Often in Scotland you see deer and there are lots of small birds and raptors. In Lofoten I saw hares on several occasions but little else besides the birds. In Iceland I saw a Ptarmigan family in the middle of nowhere, but no other wildlife whatsoever

Thanks for the compliments :)

Sometimes it's all too easy to forget what a beautiful country I live in. Thanks for reminding me.

People travel from all over the world to see Scotland's landscape. I WISH I lived there too!
