I parked at the bridge over the Gruinard river and cycled 6 km down the track to just before the concrete bridge where i left the bike. I then followed the river along a path, then left it to go over Creag na Sgoirine. I should have went around it to the north but stayed on the path too long, which added a bit to the day. After i was over CnS i could see the Graham and firstly made my way to a wooded building before reaching the path that led to the col. I left the path to go up the north east ridge to climb to the summit, then had some lunch before returning to the col. I was now heading to the Corbett, with a couple of minor tops to go over before reaching the summit. From the summit i headed north east to between the two Lochans and then got myself down some steep ground to the path that led alongside the river and back to the bike. The cycle in and out is on a good track and mostly level, with only a 30 min cycle back out.

The scenery around there has to be among the best on the planet, Johnny. And the the Fisherfield area must be a great place to go back to for climbing other mountains, now you've compleated the Munros.

Thanks Simon, yeah have to agree with the scenery, it's stunning. Yes it was good to see all the Munros in the area, knowing you had been up them. :D
