The Isle of South Uist

Walking Beinn Mhor, south Uist

Title: Walking Beinn Mhor, south Uist
Posted by: Andy Smith on 28-04-2010

Discussion: Hi there. A last minute decision and heading back to the Uists, first time in 4 years and really looking forward to it.

Quite keen to walk more of North & South Uist as didn't do much last visit, to busy driving & talking to locals!

Can anyone tell me of a route/path from the road leading to the ridge of Beinn Mhor, parking etc? Failing that one of the nearby hills with views across to Skye would be nice.

I'm thinking about this Sunday or Monday (02/03 May), if anyone wishes to join me that would be wonderful.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks Eoghan.

Sorry for my late reply, been hectic since my return. What an amazing time, Beinn Mhor was much harder than I thought considering the Cairngorms are my regular playground! But the views looking eastbound took my breath away.

Will upload some pictures in next few days. Can't wait to get back.

Also, a nice little extract here:

Be sure to get a good photo of Lochcarnan for me now when you are at the top.

Andy. I am assuming you are close to leaving home and starting your journey. Before you do so, get yourself to Waterstones, or your nearest adrenalin junkie outdoor shop and get the following title:

Nick Williams - The Islands

His books are concise and to the point, and also, they are pocket books, and they fit in realistically sized pockets.

Before the old Borders shut, I used to go in and take pics of the route with my camera phone - his circular routes are second to none. I have them all now.

He covers all the significant hills in the Uists and always good for the other chapters. I would also get yourself an OS map, make sure you have the right scale, some OS maps only cover the bottom half of South Uist and Barra, and vice versa.
