Circumnavigation of Beinn Bheigier, Islay

By Becky Williamson

An 8 and a half mile circular walk, starting at Ardtalla, circumnavigating Beinn Bheigier (Islay's highest mountain) in an anti-clockwise direction, following Gleann Lẹra and the Claggain River to Claggain Bay and walking back up the road to Ardtalla.

Spectacular views of the Sound of Islay and Islay's eastern range of hills. Quite difficult terrain, although quad bike tracks are followable most of the way round Beinn Bhaigier and deer tracks along the Claggain River. I did the walk in 6 and a quart hours - a record for me! You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page LinkExternal link .
