Another epic day out. Weather was superb so once again lobster pink :-/ So thats been 8 Munro's in a row (4 last week) with not a spot of rain. Walk in was a bit of a nightmare, mostly boggy underfoot and personally reckon that from the carpark to Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich was the hardest part of the day, although at times the descent from An Coileachan back to the carpark seemed endless. Only met 3 other walkers on the whole 24km route so seemed super remote at times. Made sure camera was charged this week too so no need to keep blabbing, after all a picture says a 1000 words ;-)

It's a great round this but, as you say, the walk back from An Coileachan does seem to go on forever. Long may this sun continue :D .
