Ben Griam Beg

Hillfort

Fieldnotes

16/05/2010 - Ever since I visited Tap o' Noth, Scotland's second highest Hillfort I've always wanted to visit here, Ben Griam Beg - Scotland's Highest.

Ben Griam Beg with it's brother Ben Griam Mor make for a great walk, starting from near the Garvault Hotel (the most remote hotel in mainland Britain).

It's hard to believe people stayed and built a fort here. Remote is a good word. Great place.

It doesnt have many redeeming features (water source, arable land, fuel ,etc) does it? Although that could have been a wee bit different 1000 yeras ago............looks like a great walk T. strathspey Posted by strathspey
