Used mountain bikes from the car park at Inveray to cycle down Glen Ey, which is approx 8 km long and took 1 hour. From the ruined Altmour Lodge we first climbed Beinn Iutharn Mhor, once we climbed the shorter northern slope it was a long walk to the summit, from there onto Carn Bhac which is approx 2 km distance with peat hags covering most of the walk in between the mountains, from there back to altmour Lodge and the bikes then cycled back to the car park at Inveray, the cycle back took only a half hour. Fantastic views right across Scotland as the weather was perfect.

Ah Altanour! Just about my favourite place in the UK! I just love Glen Ey. I cycled up when I did those 2 - my 'normal' walking companion Richard turned back half-way up the glen as the weather was bad and he couldn't be bothered. Shows how nice a ride it is if I still enjoyed it despite horrid weather...
