You're obviously v quick up the hills!

I did the Fisherfield round last week - https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=82284 - and there was enough water - I carried 2.5 litres and drew down a maximum of 1.5 litres (ie the minimum I was carrying at any one time was a litre), because generally there were sufficient water sources. I estimate I drank about 8 litres, and what went in didn't come out the usual way ... !!!

I'm sure you'll love it - it's a wonderful place!
