Track_2017-04-05 135334.gpx **Discalimer - Only for munros with long, gradual walk ins!** That's me out and about for 2017 and I'd been looking at the two from Old Bridge of Tilt for bike 'n' hikes for a while.

Beinn Fhionnlaidh from Glen Etive

Track_2016-10-09 153833.gpx First off, if anyone wants to follow this route, ignore the part where the GPS heads towards Clach nam Meirleach after the summit of Fhionnlaidh. This led to Big Tommo and I having one of our dodgiest moments in the hills for a good few years :shock: but more on that lat...
