Arrived about 03.30, initially cloud free so sky was starting to brighten from 01.30am on way up!

Parked at Layby 79.

Crossed track at wrong place, should have gone further down and used underpass which I did on way back. If redoing, would be more careful as bend in track in both directions might not give much warning of trains.

Followed path up then took minor path to right which went up and through peat bog on hillside. I wanted to make more of a circular route.

Clouds came in before first munro although got some nice photos of sunrise about halfway through walk. On second summit, clouds went away and had one of few cloud free summits this year!

Followed footpath down to river then across bridge, before heading down landrover track.

Very quiet on hills although as I was leaving I did see someone arrive.
