Kintail Bookends - guided days hiking the Cluanie and Strath Croe Munros

At either end of the Kintail Brothers and Sisters there is superb hiking and ridge-walking to be enjoyed. At the western end A'Ghlas Bheinn's spurs reach down to the geln below resembling the fingers of a hand and Beinn Fhada is tucked behind, teasing us with glimses of it's narrow ridge on Sgurr a'Coire Ghairbh. To the east, the Munros north of Loch Cluanie rise above lonely Ceannacroc Forest and are connected by wild spurs.
