Another near miss RH,Gavin and i had been up Ben Hope on Sunday then travelled down to Achnasheen to climb Moruisg on the Monday,had it not been for a last minute change of plan to head to Torridon we would probably have bumped into you on your way off the hills :lol: Great report and pics as usual and handy as well,been looking at ways to link up some remaining hills in the area so your report will come in handy, :wink:

Wow!

That's a fantastic day out RH - good to see you still only do short walks :lol:

Had hoped to get up to this part of the land before the nights became too short and I fear it's next year for me now, but that's a great route. And gets your corbett count up nicely as well :wink:

A lovely, understated, title RH :lol:

Having done the Munros on your circuit I'm not sure I'd describe them as just some hills. On their own I seemed to recall they were pretty tough blighters.

As always, you have some superb photos of your trip :D :clap: Some of the views are simply stunning :D

I'm looking forward to getting back one day to pick the Corbetts and the two other Munros off :D Your report is putting ideas in my head..... :wink:

Once again very impressive rockhopper! :clap: And very unusual: a picture of you :D
Although I'm not that far up north yet (still lurking in the Fort William area) I have already been plotting how to link these hills up. Your report will come in handy one day. Thanks!

The journey continues :)

Nice to see you getting some decent views and enjoying them when able to keep on your feet :shock:

Seems people are compleating all over the place and I'm sure it won't be long till you have your day too.

Looking forward to that final trip report :wink:

You youngsters are all the same - one day you'll be old as well :lol: :wink: I did actually have a route worked out for the M6C3 including these two but reckoned it would have made for two longish days which wasn't so good at this time of year with an overnight pack. Also, I've still to return for Maol Chean-dearg so decided on a return two day trip - one for MC-d and one for Sheasgaich/Mhor by bike from Attadale - should make for two straightforwardish days but not sure when though
