Glen Shiel Ridge

By Phil on 2016.06.07 In Munros Scotland

Last weekend a group of us headed to Ratagn and stayed at the hostel on the edge of Loch Duich. The plan was to do the epic Glen Shiel Ridge and bag ourselves seven Munro’s in one day.

The Murno’s included, Creag a’ Mhaim, Druim Shionnach, Aonach Air Chrith, Maol Chinn-dearg, Sgurr an Doire Leathain, Sgurr an Lochain and Creag nan Damh. We had perfect weather conditions and some stunning cloud inversion views.

Below are some photos of the hike which took us twelve hours to complete.

Welcome to my blog about hiking, trekking, Fjällräven Polar 2014, in fact anything where you require boots and the outdoors.

My name is Phil, and following my outdoor epiphany which started in the summer of 2012 I’m now hooked on everything outdoors. So far my biggest treks have included the 250km Cathar Way, the 170km Tour du Mont Blanc and best of all, winning 1st place to take part in the Fjällräven Polar in April 2014.

I plan to use this blog to write about all my adventures, which will include my personal goal of becoming a Munroist (completing all 282 Scottish Munro mountains), summer treks, weekends in the Lakes and many more.

I like to try and make my blog posts humorous so I hope you enjoy reading and that I can put a smile on people’s faces while showing you some amazing places.

If you have any questions about the blog or the places I'm writing about, don't hesitate to contact me on: phil@philyourboots.com
