This report is mainly a picture report to follow up the excellent post by Gammy leg walker
Jonny and Gammy 2 munros (return trip already planned)
Me,Ron and Alice 6 munros
This for a few of us was our 1st wild camping experience, so why not try the hard way this trip really tested my ability on the hills but was a really enjoyable weekend in a truly stunning area
I have to say though with recent dry warm weather especially up the nw coast that the midges were by far the worst I have ever experienced and hopefully I dont experience that again as the wee buggers nearly ruined my weekend.
Although the midges were trying there best to annoy me they quickly got ignored as we reached each summit as every time we got to each top the views just got better and better particularly from A' Mhaighdean and even though by the time I got here I was already feeling the pain It was quickly forgotten as what I seen from here will stay with me for a long time,A quick reminder of why I love hillwalking so much and how it is worth the effort.
This was a real hard effort by all of us and was enjoyed by everyone, I hope and was a real achievement.
I would like to add a few thanks to Jonny for carrying all they beers and whisky to the bothy To Ron for his support, to gammy........ for being gammy and a big thanks to Alice as if it wasnt for her I would never have continued round this on my own and it was great to have her company for the rest of the walk,even though it was the hardest thing ive ever done sorry for being so crabbit in the end Alice but they jaggy nettles at the end really finished me off
sorry for the amount of pics on this report but it is a really special place

Haven't been to these munros yet but hope to some time - spent many holidays in the area though lower level walking and mountain biking - cheers
Thanks mate, I think I deleted over 50 pics but with the mobile phone camera it doesnt get in the way as much so im taking more
Hope you enjoy when the time comes
