Day 97: Munros 38, 39 & 40: 22 Oct 2020

Nicks Munro Challenge: 282 Munros in 1200 days at age 80

38: Carn Ghluasaid 957m
39: Sgurr nan Conbhairean 1109m
40: Sail Chaorainn 1002m

Walkhighlands has good information here about these hills:

Carn Ghluasaid 957m:   is reached by a fine stalkers path from the north side of Loch Cluanie. The other side of the mountain collapses in broken crags down to Coire Sgreumh. The mountain is really quite a minor subsidiary summit of Sgurr nan Conbhairean - with less than 60m of ascent if coming up from the direction of its parent peak.

Sgurr nan Conbhairean 1109m: is a shy, dome shaped mountain above Loch Cluanie but set back too far to be seen from the road. It is the highest of a group of three Munros that make an enjoyable round.

Sail Chaorainn 1002m: is a rather forgotten peak amongst the Kintail Munros, being situated out of sight behind Sgurr nan Conbhairean. It's position on the ridge extending north from that peak makes it fairly remote.

Thanks to Fiona Nairn, Ross and Lewis.

We parked at Lundie about 4m east of Cluanie Inn and followed the stalkers path to the first summit.Then NW and N over the next 2 summits. The descent was via the S ridge of the second summit

Total Climbed so far: 40032m

Many thanks to all who have made donations.
As a result of meeting these people on the hills and my family successfully putting me on Instagram the total raised so far is going up nicely. Donations have taken a big leap since featuring in The Sunday Post & LadBible.

My grandchildren have coined the phrase #bemorenick which is bringing some amusement.

Total raised so far: £8570 (not including Gift Aid)
