The Great Wilderness by Alex37 The Great Wilderness by Alex37
The trip around The Great Wilderness was formed around seeing this iconic view. The vista to the west from the summit of A'Mhaighdean alone was worth the hike, sleep deprivation and hunger (the latter due to underestimating the necessary calorie intake!). A Mhaighdean is regarded by many as the most remote of the Scottish Munros and getting here is no easy feat although many people manage! To the top left you can see Beinn Airigh Charr, where we spent the night before. Below from near to far are Dubh Loch and Fionn Loch. To the right is Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor with Sgurr na Laocainn below where we spent the following night. In the distance lies Poolewe on the northwest coast of Scotland where our hike began. The summit of A' Mhaighdean is the highest elevation of the Lewisian Gneiss
