Two of our team members are taking on the challenge of completing all of Arran's 700m plus peaks(12 summits!!!) in one go on the 14th May to help raise funds for us and Mulanje MRT.
They will be starting at the crack of dawn on Sunday 14th May from Pirnmill and the intended route is as follows.. The first summit of the day Beinn Bharrain(717m) then along the ridge onto Mullach Buidhe(721m- the highest of our Western hills) then the final 700+ summit on the Pirnmill ridge - Beinn Bhreac(711m). From there, they will descend to Loch Tanna and make their way across to the Leac an Tobair and up onto Caisteal Abhail(859m) before heading East on Ceum na Caillich(Witches step) to the highest point on the ridge(758m). They will now descend slightly before heading up on to Cir Mhor(799m). From Cir Mhor they will descend S/W and onto their biggest challenge of the day A'Chir (745m -which involves a bit of technical scrambling) Once over A'chir they will descend onto Bealach an Fhir bhogha before climbing once again to reach the summit of Beinn Tarsuinn(826m) After this summit, they will have a slight descent along the ridge to Beinn Nuis(792m) before returning back along the ridge to Beinn Tarsuinn and onto the North side of Beinn a Chliabhain for a decent into Coire Daingean and down into Glen Rosa. The final part of the day will see them head up from Glen Rosa onto the saddle, up North Goatfell ridge to the summit of North Goatfell(818m) along the ridge N/E onto Mullach Buidhe(819m) then finally heading back along Stacach and onto the final and highest summit of the challenge - Goatfell(874m)
