Mount Brandon from Faha – Strenuous – 5 hours – 14 kms – Height Gain 770m

This ascent of Mount Brandon is a New Year’s tradition for the Club. It involves a long, gradual approach of up to 2 hours before a 30-minute steep scramble up the Eisc, a highly-eroded gravel track which requires a bit of scrambling. From there, a handy 20-minute walk brings one to the summit. Weather permitting, the views on all sides are spectacular.
