Ascent from Arnisdale with Scott B, mist clearing to allow good views on descentbarnz4828/05/2017
Climbed Beinn Sgitheall solo from Arnisdale, including the East Top and NW Top. Ample parking in village. Lovely path up to Bealach Arnasdail. Bouldery climb to E top. Great though short ridge walk from there to the main summit, which is a stupendous viewpoint overlooking Loch Hourn, Skye and the hills of Knoydart and Kintail. After bagging the NW top, I traversed back to the West Ridge for the descent. The last bit through Coille Mhialairigh woods to the Arnisdale road is awkward as I lost the very faint path and ended up fighting through some steep and very overgrown hillside! Weather was fine - no wind, sunny earlier in the day, but clouding up later (mist settled on the summits, but after I left). Was plagued by midges at times. This was actually the 2nd time I've climbed the East Top - first was in sunny winter conditions in 2002 (February?)with friend Paul I recall (did not continue to the Munro itself that day due to deep snow and lack of equipment).jamessteel10017/08/2016
