A fine big walk in a terrific setting. Certainly something for everyone in and around both Lairigs :) Heading there in September,hopefully, camping near the same spot as you- so long as the midges don't bleed me dry :lol: .

Another epic there Mr Hopper - really racking them up now.

I too saw that "standing stone” on the west flank of Bienn Bhrotain. It looked to me that someone had put the stone in this position and then packed rocks round its base to keep it upright.

As for the b****** midges they are the main reason I don't go on our walking club meets to the west coast during the summer. We still get them here in the east but [usually] not in so great a number. Looks like this has been an exceptionally bad year for this blight.

Hay Rockhopper, you are doing some mega walks lately this being one of them. Top class effort. Some good photos on a big round. Shame about the midges hahaha. :D
