Beinn Bheigier (Ben Vicar) from Claggain Bay, Islay.

An unbelievably dry and sunny day with no wind, so down to park at Claggain Bay to go up Islay's highest mountain - Beinn Bheigier, 491m. Followed the newly constructed track before passing through the deer fence onto the fell. A visible path leads up onto to a first peak - mainly molinia and heather - and then onto the lovely broad ridge. Lots of nice arctic/alpine flora and the most fantastic views all round the island.
