My walk is on my 50th munro Bynack More
i started at the Glenmore Forrest and walked an easy clear path passed the lochain passed two hills walking in between them and all the way to the top of the mountain but no path to the Barns of Bynack! and at the end we took the exact same path back down hill passing loads of people on the way back. Felt longer coming back than it did going up :/ hate that feeling. But a great day out on a fairly easy Munro.

Excellent stuff mountainboy, hope you had plenty of water with you, it looks pretty hot judging by your photographs. Well done in reaching 50 :clap: I wonder how many you will have done by the end of the year? have you set yourself a target?
