Steall(ing) some views
Ring of Steall in Mamores

Mamores Exploring
I had been looking over to the Mamores during the 2 clear days I had during the last 3 days ascending Ben Nevis (view blog) and the views had enticed me over to explore

I fancied doing either all or part of the Ring of Steall but hadn't decided where to go exactly

In the end I did the Ring of Steall with an extension out to Binnein Mor giving a walk of 22Km with 2,600 metres of ascent
