Hill: Beinn Maol Chaluim
Date: Saturday 12th December 2009
Company: Myself, Ian and Judy
Time: 5 Hrs

Quite a late start for me this morning. We parked at 149496, next to Lochan Urr, where there is room for 3 or 4 cars and started walking at 09:30. The ascent from the road starts steeply alongside a fence and forest. Then simply a case of heading up, following the broad ridge, until reaching the 848m top.

On reaching the crags around 600m we bypassed them to the left.

A nice straight-forward grassy hill but with lots of lumps and bumps. We returned to the car via the same route.
