Decided to try and finish the remaining munro tops so took the bus to Cluanie and walked through to Alltbeithe, my first time through this pass and once the landrover track ended I was glad it was a dry spell, could be a bog trot in the wet. Had lunch and refilled waterbottles at the hostel, it was aroasting hot day so made sure I had plenty of water, which made the climb up onto the ridge a bit of a slog. Proceeded along to the summit, my tird time on top, and I had forgotten the last 200m pull to the top, sweated buckets. Continued along to the West top along a nice gnarly ridge, then took the north ridge across Suc Bheag and Mor, and found a nice flat campsite just before Stuc Fraoch Choire, so set up the tent and took a leisurely walk up to the final top without rucksack, which was bliss. lovely night and temperature inversions in the morning, took a fairly straight west bearing down to cross Abhainn Gaorsaic, which could be problematic in high water, then over the col between Meall Dubh and Meall an Odhar to join the Falls of Glomach path, which was folloed out toAllt a'Chruinn and the bus home, great round but tiring in the heat, that leaves 25 to do.
