ACW circuit of Beinn a'Mhuill, Cearnabhal & Liuthaid (including two minor tops). With Gill & John. Super hill walk - typically good Harris/Lewis scenery/terrain. Some rain & mist, but overall weather not too bad. (11km, 760m).ger27/05/2019
Parked on the wide verge opposite the start of the track, up this and then direct to Beinn a'Mhuil, and along the lovely ridge to Cearnabhal. Down to the track from the bealach and across the bogs at the watershed to pick up a rake heading NW above and below bands of crags, then NW ridge to Liuthaid. On to Mullach Bhiogadhail, down the ruined fence to cross the river and up to the track. A fine walk, splendid views and mainly easy going.Gill27/05/2019
