After a cold night camping 5 of us set out to do the Glen Lyon Horseshoe, this was the first time doing 4 Munro's at one time so there was some apprehension on whether it was actually acheivable for us. After climbing Carn Gorm the work of the day was mostly done. The other hills were fine due to the relatively short drops and climbs for the other 3. The weather held out which made everything more enjoyable.
