|The Round Of Glen Sannox*|| 2 |
Walk Around Arran >>
|from Sannox, ascend the nose of Suidhe Fhearglas and follow the ridge anti-clockwise over Caisteal Abhail, Cir Mhor, North Goatfell, Mullach Buidhe and Cioch na h-Oighe. There are numerous sections of scrambling, including the Witch's Step (avoiding the direct descent to the bealach which would be Diff), the descents from Caisteal Abhail (line not obvious from above) and Cir Mhor, and traversing Cioch na h-Oighe. Just as fine, if not better, in reverse, this is a contender for the best day's ridge walking in Britain. Would be worth 4 stars if that were available.|

Done clockwise, Arran holds some of the finest ridge-walking in the country.

Done over 2 days due to the consumption of excessive alcohol the night before day 1, we did get a bit giddy, doing it over the 2 days allowed us to carry on from North Goat Fell to Goat Fell for another tick in a box. The most exhilarating 2 days walking and scrambling of my walking life. Will have to be repeated at some point.
