The 6 munros to the east of the A93 form what would probably be a nice little round in its own right (the trip from Tom Bhuide to Tolmount is over in no time). However, with legs still feeling the exertion from the day before (see route walk for Mayar and Driesh) the second half of the round became a bit of a drag. In particular the climb up the eastern flank of Carn Aosda from the A93 was not pleasant at all; no path and lots of high leg raises through the heather.
Still the day's effort meant I was able to enjoy a huge bag of fish and chips from the Hungry Highlander without feeling guilty and hope that the legs won't be too tired on the Lochnagar circuit the next day

I hadn't thought of combining these hills, food for thought! Might take me longer than you did it but a 12 hour walk in the summer sounds like it would be possible.
