I had a great bike ride into the wonderful, wild and lonely Glen Mallie-South of Loch Arkaig today. Cycle along the Caledonian Canal to Acnaharry and along Glen Mallie. Lovely pathless walk to the summit of 727m. Mullach Coire nan Geur-oirean, try pronouncing that one! Obviously a less frequented hill as not even a summit cairn. Lots of shielings in the glen below, a well inhabited area in the past. It was a overcast day but the weather fitted the occasion with lots of stags roaring in the glen below. Just got back to the bike and the rain came on. Weather looks much cooler and forecasting snow on the higher tops next week, winter not far away!
