The Mamores Outliers, 4 Munros
September 23 @ 7:30 am - 6:00 pm£65.00
The Mamores Outliers are made up of Sgurr Eilde Mor, Binnein Beag, Binnein Mor and Na Gruagaichean. This impressive circuit takes in the two outliers of the Mamores range, Sgurr Eilde Mor and Binnein Beag. Both stand alone munros detached from the main ridge line to the east and the eastern munros, Binnein Mor and Na Gruagaichean of the main ridge line.
The day will begin from the parking at Grey Mares Waterfall. From here a path leads off east towards Loch Eilde Mor to gain a 4×4 track, we will follow this track to gain a footpath that ascends uphill towards Coire an Lochain. from the lochain a steep climb over loose rock and boulders leads to the summit of Sgurr Eilde Mor, the first munro of this circuit.
We will descend from Sgurr Eilde Mor to the west and return to the footpath, here we continue north towards Binnein Beag. A gradual uphill climb leads to a small lochain, we will pass the lochain on its southern side and then climb steeply towards the summit of Sgurr Eilde Mor. The second munro of the day and on a clear day one of the finest view points in this area. We will then retrace our steps back to the lochain.
To continue we now climb the northeast ridge of Binnein Mor, it is a steep climb evntually becoming rockier with height gained and does involve some scrambling to gain the ridge. Infront of us now lies pleasant scrambling along the ridge that leads to the summit of Binnein Mor, the third munro of this circuit.
From Binnein Mor to Na Gruagaichean lies a fine ridge line that gives pleasant walking. First south towards an unnamed top and then west towards the summit of Na Gruagaichean, the forth and final munro of this epic circuit.
Descent is to the south to a minor top and then west down steep grassy slopes to regain the 4×4 track that will return us back to the parked cars.
