Forgot to add this in my blog. Completed on 18th July 2013 in shorts / t-shirt. Was roasting.

IMAG0003.jpg
started off heading easterly up the path by the radio mast


IMAG0008.jpg
now i could've headed straight up to the top then beared right (south) for the 1st summit, but i went to check out the bothy 1st


IMAG0010.jpg
the bothy


IMAG0011.jpg
nice woodburner for the colder nights ;


IMAG0015.jpg
looking up to the summit of Creag leacach. Nice easy going at this point


IMAG0016-creag_leacach.jpg
the summit of Creag Leacach, 1 down, 8 to go.


IMAG0018.jpg
and off we go over the scree for no.2, Glas Maol


IMAG0021.jpg
nice wee shelter built from rocks and scree, handy in winter ;


IMAG0025-glas_maol.jpg
at the summit of no.2 Glas Maol


IMAG0027.jpg
heading for no.3, Cairn of Claise, quite boring and featureless at this part


IMAG0029-cairn_of_claise.jpg
on the summit of Cairn of Claise, next, Tom Buidhe


IMAG0033.jpg
heading for Tom Buidhe, again, featureless and glad i had a good day for it.


IMAG0035-tom_buidhe.jpg
on the summit of no.4, Tom Buidhe


IMAG0036.jpg
heading for no.5, Tolmount


IMAG0037-tolmount.jpg
summit of no.5, Tolmount


IMAG0038-tolmount.jpg
starting to feel a river running down my back now, on we go for no.6, Carn an Tuirc


IMAG0039.jpg
it's quite a slog over all the scree to reach the summit of no6, Carn an Tuirc, the final Munro of this circuit that's East of the A93 / Ski Centre


IMAG0041-carn_an_tuirc.jpg
Scree ridden summit of Carn an Tuirc. A very long walk back down to the A93 now to reach no.7, Carn Aosda


IMAG0042.jpg
A very long walk back down from no.6, Carn an Tuirc, to the A93, to reach no.7, Carn Aosda. The 1st of the 3 Munro's west of the A93 / Ski Centre


IMAG0044.jpg
after crossing the A93, head East straight up the heather for a quick ascent to the summit of no.7, Carn Aosda


IMAG0045-carn_aosda.jpg
the summit of no.7, Carn Aosda with no.9, The Cairnwell in the background. Legs are like lead now ;


IMAG0048.jpg
and continuing on for no.8, Carn a'Gheoidh


IMAG0049-carn_a'gheoidh.jpg
at the summit of no.8, Carn a'Gheoidh. Legs are absolutely lobster red with sunburn at this point. You have to backtrack now for no.9, The Cairnwell


IMAG0050-the_cairnwell.jpg
at the summit of no.9, The Cairnwell. All i did then was head east, straight back down the heather to the car park. going down was more painful on the legs that going up. 9 munro's bagged though and a massive feel good factor ;;


what a great feeling of achievement after this circuit. really had to push myself after no.6 but kept up the fight and managed them all.
