Best and hardest walk i have done in ages.

Would recommend it for anyone fit and experienced.

Don't bother doing its neighbour (Nevis)... Do this instead!

I wouldn't worry to much about missing Am Bodach, it will give you an excuse to return to do the ring or it's easily accessible from Kinlochleven linking it up with some more of the Mamores.

this is one of next years trips to link up a few from the kinlochleven side. stob ban looked good as did the two binneins, mor and beag. Any route ideas are greatfully received.
