This years days in Scotland were spent in May and turned out to be amongst some of the best ever. With my cats and horse sorted and looked after, I flew in from Hamburg to Edinburgh. Got picked up by Susan the next morning. On our way to Ft. Willi to meet long time friend Alex, before we set off in her car to Killian.

Susan and Alex were on their rounds of Corbetts and Fionas, as I was on my Munro-round. My first plan, to walk over from Dornie to Loch Mullardoch was thanks to my friends abandoned.

On a pleasent afternoon we walked in to Iron Lodge. Cows were expecting and the farmers were at alert waiting in the cars.

My dodgy archilles had a word or two to say on the 8 miles to the Lodge. We pitched the tents and enjoyed the sunshine. It was just 6pm, so Alex suggested, we could go up Carn na Breabag.

A quick look at the map. Sure can do. After repacking my small bag we headed up the steep track into the direction of Loch Mullardoch, leaving it at the first turn to scramble steeply to the left into the shoulder of the hill.

As it turned out, it was exactly the hill, were last year, on my unfortunate try to do the Mullardoch hills, I camped on the other side next to a stream.

This evening was just perfect. The walking was hard nonetheless but brightend by the view over the

Hills of Mullardoch, Affric and Kintail. Superb!

This was just the first day and a wonderful sign, what I had to expect over the next 14 days.

After 3 hours we were back at the tents.
