billymck and I climbed these four Munros last weekend from Glen Lyon. This was our first attempt at four Munros in one outing and was a great challenge for us and we were lucky enough to hit some ideal weather with fatastic views in all directions. The descent from Meall nan Aighean isn't much fun for creeky old knees like mine!

Here are some pictures...
