Knoydart is one of Scotland's great wilderness areas. No roads lead to this west-coast peninsula, and access is afforded by boat (from Corran or Kinloch Hourn), or a seven-mile footpath from the road-end at Kinloch Hourn. But the rewards are great, leading to a hidden land boasting three wonderful mountains, Ladhar Bheinn, Meall Bhuidhe and Luinne Bheinn. This page documents an expedition by Powis Acadeny, Aberdeen during a spell of sunny April weather.
