Ski Mountainnering - Toll Creagach :Glen Affric
This is a wonderful ski tour and with the good snow cover it is in grand conditions this year. The starting point is at a convenient parking place at the west end of Loch Beinn a Meadhoin at Glen Affric National Nature reserve. From here you skin up a track and then traverese easterly below Beinn Eun and take a steep line up by the west side of Alt Coire an t Sneachda and then skirting the main Coire an t-Snechda and then we found good snow which took us all the way to the summit cairn and trig point ( about 3.5 hours). There are many Red Deer to see. The deer fences have gates and styles althogh at one point o descent we found it better to climb the fence rather than make a lengthy detour. But for summer wlakers the gates are well places and pretty ideal! Summit views over Loch Mullardoch and miles beyond!
