The distances are a bit deceptive in that area, Mheall Bhuide looked close when we first saw it from Mam Barrisdale, so much so we thought it must be behind another and got the compass out to check, but was still 10 hours of glorious walking :D

Great reports from the Knoydart days, the landscape is really different and pictures are lovely,especially those ridges on the day 2 - they look like a good challenge. Nice camp......... see you only have 3 to go! :D
