I got the first ferry over from Oban on the Thursday morning and drove up to the starting point which was at the bridge at the foot of Glen Fada. This was also where i would spent the night. I set off around 09.30 up Glen Fada to the Col and then took a left up to the Graham, Bheinn Fhada. From here i made my way back to the col and over A'Chioch and the ridge to Ben More. As i was spending the night on Mull and had plenty of time left i decided to take in the Marilyn, Coirc Bheinn. I headed down the south ridge and over to the Marilyn before making my way back to the car. As it was a warm day when i returned to the car i had a look at the stream and found a nice rock pool to have a wash in before having dinner and deciding which walk to do the following day.

Makes sense to tag a Marilyn onto a walk to bigger hills. We learned too late, and had to go back for them.
