This is a really excellent loop but my god is it steep! We left the hiking poles in the car and remembered them half way up Carn Gorm. I don't think my knees will forgive me for a few days yet! What a cracking hike though, even still a bit of snow on the top and we were treated to some boxing hares as we got back down
