Just Another Wild Camp
Here’s what’s special and unique about wild camping. You wake up, open a door of your tent and what you see is not a fence, not your neighbor and not another building. Basically, it’s whatever you want it to be. Depends on where you’re able to get. But it depends only on you.
If so, why not to choose an awesome and for many even fearsome place? The narrowest ridge in the UK to have as a morning view? Sounds perfect to me. That’s why I chose a stunning view of the majestic ridge Aonach Eagach to have for the beginning of my day. And because It presents its best view from the side of Sgorr nam Fiannaidh, which is the western summit of Aonach Eagach, I decided to set up my camp there. To reach the top of this Munro you can start directly from the Glencoe Village and avoid by that scrambling through the ridge. But keep in mind it’s still not the easiest route to walk.
However, from Sgorr nam Fiannaidh there’s much more to see. You can still see Glencoe Village from up there and much better that characteristic shape of Sgorr na Ciche. Looking North you’ll see the top of Ben Nevis as well. Then the line of the ridge goes along Glencoe and leads your eyes towards Buachaille Etive Mor. And right across Glencoe, there’s Bidean nam Bian which is almost at your fingertips. Simply great view in every direction.
And if you ever heard Glencoe is the “Midge Capital Of The World”, well, I’m sure it was that day 🙂
