Wonderful MC, just wonderful. Makes me want to do this all the more; even if I'll have to trade a bed for a sleeping bag and a mat. Trying to think of the last time I camped ............... '86 on Mersea Island with a bunch of 'towny' kids in my teaching days. It's going to be painful ...... think I better practise in the back garden first.

Well if you stay in the bothy rather than camp, you might be able to bag an extra sleeping mat as there are 3 there - a few of us did! I had 2 air mattresses - was great! There's also 2 spare emergency sleeping bags so if you were cold, you could have an extra one on the outside of your own :D The worst thing I found was carrying my stuff in as I'm not used to carrying and I found it quite a strenuous hike over the moors!

But it really is a superb place. Shenaval is lovely (I'm really missing it). The views from A' Mhaighdean have to be among the best from any mountain in Scotland. The atmosphere of the area is superb too.

Nice report mate! Good detail and pics. I've just joined this site and love the fact that you can post your own walk reports. I'll definately be adding any new walks that I do from now on! :)
