This tour is just a wee stroll.
For my wee tour I parked up at the bottom of the elbow road in '83 to walk over the four tops on the East side of the glen then jogged up/down back to my motor to pick-up my rucksack etc. Four of your group were visited before camping between Carn an Righ and the non listed top mam nan cairn then continueing with a visit to the other five tops and to finish on Cairnwell the following day.
Never set off without the old Primus stove..... well nowadays it would be a gas one....hot sweet tea is what I crave for on these trips.
Looking at your Munro count- you have done very well and OMG your tour de Munro in '83 sounded mad!! I would not have been able to jog down anything after the 2 days
Tea...is there anything better when being cold and freezing?? Thats one reason to buy a nice wee stove for my next adventure..winter time is coming soon.

Shame the weather has started getting cold now. My pal isn't ready for the winter yet so im waiting til next summer now
Bivvy bag?? How do you manage the midges? They would drive me insane! Waiting until next summer?? Would you be able to do that? The longest I managed was 2 months...
