Ben Gulabin and Carn a Gheoidh. Descended via Carn nan Sac

Included stop at Invercauld Bothy for lunch

This was a great day, I REALLY enjoyed this route, weather was spot on also which helped!

I didn't take my camera as I thought it was going to rain...but it didn't!! So the photos were all taken on my iphone!
