Reading this in the middle of the night really cheered me up! Nice photo's too.
Lots of information, though sometimes I lost track of all the options and varieties. Still, long distance walkers indeed should write it all up, to fuel other people's plans.

When I'm 70, I might finally come round to climbing up and down summits straight from car parks :mrgreen:

I clearly remember the Moine track. Walked it coming from Strathy Point via Ben Loyal down to Achfary (1997, here). It took ages and I could not seem to find my love for empty spaces. I hated it, because I wanted to be on Ben Hope. The Broch cheered me up...

Thanks!
