Thanks Rockhopper - think you too were in the area recently (has off for getting up An Teallach too - we thoughtaout the BEINN dEARG Hills - but were too gubbed to contemplate :shock: !)! - did lots of report reading before heading out too - some belting photos and reports from this round. It really felt special and especially remote. Standing at the summit of Beinn Tarsuin d looking at An Tealach made me realise how far away from anywhere we were!! An awesome place - think I'll be back in a few years - once my legs and back have recovered!!!

Thanks Annie - made the most of the clear conditions at the end and start of the day - glad I popped my head out of the tent to check :) My brother missed most of the inversion but still got some views when he awoke from his slumber (earlybirdcatchestheworm :lol: :crazy: )

Thanks for nice comments
