1. Gleann na Muice, Fisherfeld
Location: Fisherfeld | Grid Ref: NH048785
A proper wild camp spot, requiring a long walk-in from either Poolewe or Corrie Hallie. Includes a challenging river crossing on the latter route.
I have used this a number of times as a base to break down the long trip required to bag the Fisherfield Five, (used to be Six before Beinn a’Chlaidheimh was demoted from Munro status of course).
Once there, you find a splendid area of flat grass as the burn splits and ribbons, surrounded by An Teallach to the North East, Beinn Dearg Mor to the North West, and to the South and West the wonderful peaks that make up the rest of the Fisherfield cirque.
- Pros – Wild, remote, atmospheric.
- Cons – Can be difficult to cross the Abhainn Strath na Sealga at Shenavall if it is in spate.
