It's a great walk and the views are superb on a clear day.

Glad you had good weather to get so many photos and not get drookit feet in the bog trot out. When i did them last summer, I intended coming over the end, but the weather came in and I decided to drop to the bealach, which meant a very long trudge out in pouring rain. My feet still haven't recovered! :roll:

Thanks - yes I can imagine that would be pretty nasty in rain :?

more than makes up for the long walk back - cheers :)

Yeah, definitely! When you can admire the views your feet don't feel it so much :lol:
