Cuilling Hills

Cuilling Hills is Brittain’s most spectacular range with trails for most experienced climbers but also with low-middle level walks. We chose the Coire Lagan walk (10 km round trip) which starts from Glenbrittle campsite. The climbing was steep, especially the last part, but we were rewarded with a nice loch surrounded by impressive cliffs on the top. Views over the sea were also great from here. The loch was a nice stop for lunch and a little nap.


On the way back, the rock was a little bit wet because of a stream and I lost my balance and started slipping down and down until the ground below me disappeared . . . I thought it was over for me.

Fortunately when I fell down my full small backpack protected my back and the accident ended up with (only) a sprained ankle, a broken thumb and collateral damage to my right knee. It could have been worse thought. After blocking my right ankle with an elastic bandage and take an hiboprufene to reduce the swelling, I was able to go down slowly to the campsite where Bloody Mary was waiting for us. I did not much else that day.
