Was thinking of trying the four Munros plus Corbett + Graham in the summer (then going for Suilven the next day), but if it’s going to be a 17 hour day erm maybe not...! :shock:

Reading it brought back memories of aching legs on those hills - I foolishly thought it would be a good idea to do the five munros including Seana Bhraigh https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22381

As I remember though the first proximity of the three munros to each other can lull one into a false sense of security about how easy the day is going to be, whilst sapping the strength from the legs for the longer part of the route still to come.

I agree with Graeme - it's definitely character building :crazy:
