Great effort with big pack and all :clap: :clap: Some fabulous photographs and great report. That ridge between MB and LB looks pretty rocky indeed right enough, shame you could not get the Friday off the whole weekend would have been totally different with fabulous views in all directions from all three hills. I have never been to Inverie and that is something I must do, the only downside is you are controlled by the sailing times :( But the next time I go it's to be from Inverie :D

Fantastic...and getting ever closer :wink:

Looks like you got some decent views before the weather turned. I'll be keeping these for a scorcher :)

Maybe you could walk in from Kinlochhourn next time :D

Another 10 days and hopefully I'll get the all clear to get back on the hills, a 3 month exile has been way too long :shock:

Well done, those hills are hard work, even without a full pack! Shame you didn’t get the views on the second day, but at least you got them on the first!
I hope you get a few good days soon for Torridon! :D

Going to attempt this next Monday & Tuesday! Sadly the old forge is shut at the moment - was looking forward to that at the end of a big walk.
Thanks for the inspiration & GPX file :D

Very useful report, thank you - my partner and I did a round of Meall Buidhe, Luinne Bheinn and Ladhar Bheinn this weekend and your report was very helpful when we were planning the route.
