That's exactly what it was but worth every minute of hardship. The most memorable walk I have ever done. Scotland in all its glory. I must have taken well over 100 photos but none of them do complete justice to the breathtaking scenery of Scotland's great wilderness.
I will remember this walk for the rest of my life. A huge, dramatic, beautiful group of mountains which are impossible to put into words and pictures. Best thing would be to go there for yourself. Enjoy.

We were doing the six sunday/monday. Think it was probably your tents that we saw in the Elder woods as we crossed the river on sunday morning.
We did the route in reverse which I was glad of when I saw the steep ascent of Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair... wouldn't have enjoyed descending that scree path.
Best part of the round for me was wild camping on the plateau (tennis court) at 880m on Beinn Tarsuinn and watching the sun setting on A' Mhaighdean.
Thankfully no blisters for us, but we did feel the extra weighty packs taking their toll on our feet. The dogs claws were worn back almost to the quick due to the amount of boulder hopping going on.
