Caithness Waybaggers April Walk

Ben Griam Mor from Garvault

Fourteen of us set off from Garvault to climb Ben Griam Mor (590m).  It was a fine morning although the top of Ben Griam Mor could not be seen for low cloud.  As we made our ascent the cloud lifted and we could then see what we were heading for.


Ten-year-old Zoe was first to reach the summit.  We had our lunch in the shelter of the cairn at the top.  The views were great.  Ben Griam Beg looked superb.  On one side we looked down and could see Loch-nan Clar and Loch Badanloch.  On the other we looked down and saw Loch Coire nam Mang and Loch Druim a Chliabhain where we made our descent down to.  On the way down we came across some patches of snow on the hillside. 

We walked along the edge of Loch Druim a Chliabhain to the first small boathouse.  By this time the weather was beautiful.  It could have been a hot day in July.  We walked across the narrow stretch of land separating the two lochs.  Skirting around Loch Coire nam Mang before finally walking back up the track to the cars.

We all then headed to the Garvault Hotel for a much appreciated refreshing drink.
