I remember this as a long walk too from an era when I was not yet interested in munros.
Cheers Paula,might be a good idea to catch Iutharn Mhor with Carn An Righ and Glas Tuileachan and leave Carn Bhac as a single :wink:

I'm saving this lot for a couple of trips in the snow, I hope that will make things all better!
Cheers for the report though!

I'm going to add An Socach to two which may make things awkward. The alternative was to "try" a 5 in the summer, which may have ended in tears...

PS bring on the snow!

Met 3 guys coming down from Beinn Iutharn Mhor who were doing the 5 on Saturday Meatball.They had started at Dalmunzie ,over Glas Tuilachean,Carn An Righ,BIM,Carn Bhac and then An Socach :? The route from Carn Bhac to Socach did not look fun :( Maybe i picked them up wrong but i'm sure they said they never had a car at either end so how they were getting back to Dalmunzie am no sure,hitchin' maybe?A long hard day anyway,certainly one for a long summer day :crazy: Good luck with that if you go for it :lol:

These two not on your top 10 Munros list then pigeon :lol:

I did Carn Bhac from this approach and quite enjoyed the walk in. Didn't care much for the bog though and then got no summit views for all my efforts :lol: Did BIM from Dalmunzie as part of a threesome. Much better approach, but part of an even longer day :D

Well doen there pigeon and co! Valerie, Gavin and I did something not far off identical to you there, and were lucky to have a great day weatherwise earlier this summer. The rewards were the bonnie views on the walk-in and BIM was an interesting broad bending ridge :D
Long walk home though (always plan for that, otherwise a pint could be a risk) :clap:
