Started at Inverey, cycled down the Glen as far as the Altanour Lodge ruin. We then walked up the track to its end and took the path which started at Grouse bunker no.1 all the way to the summit. Once there i showed Jimmy and Mo the route to Beinn Lutharn Mhor if they fancied carrying on to it. They did but i didn't as i'd allready done it and they were happy to continue by themselves. I sauntered back the way i came, stopped for lunch spoke briefly to another Walkhighlander then waited at the car for them on my return. I was 5 hours, Jimmy and Mo 6 and a half.

Nice little day for you there JC (by your standards) with a bit of extra fro Jimmy & Mo. Those big old round tops look welcoming from over here, and that ride along the glen looks beautiful :D

Another good report!
Thanks for the wee mention, ' Walkhighlander' :clap:
I thoroughly enjoyed this walk and it was good having a wee blether with you.
We had a cracking day up Geal Charn and A'Mharconaich today, makes a change from the weather I've experienced recently.
Hopefully get posting in the near future. :D
