Nevis Hillwalking Club: Saturday July 9 – Morvich

Beinn Fhada (1032m, Munro) – Long Mountain

Meall an Fhuarain Mhoir (954m, Munro Top) – Rounded Hill of the Great Spring

Beinn Fhada is a massive and complex mountain, 9km long, stretching E to W from the head of Glen Affric to the Head of Loch Duich.

It has two remarkable features: the Plaide Mor which is the largest extent of ancient (preglacial) land surface to survive in the western Highlands and the SW slopes into Gleann Lichd which are seamed for 3 km with trenches reaching 10m high and 800m long, a slope deformation which is the largest ‘rock slope failure’ in the Highlands.

There are a couple of route options taking in Beinn Fhada and either Meall an Fhuarain Mhoir or Sgurr a’ Dubh Doire. Serious Munro baggers may opt to complete A’ Ghlas-bheinn as well as Beinn Fhada and miss out the Munro Tops.

18km, 1300m ascent – Beinn Fhada and Meall an Fhuarain Mhoir
22km, 1540m ascent – Beinn Fhada and Sgurr a’ Dubh Doire
19km, 1380m ascent – beinn Fhada and A’ Ghlas-bheinn
