Wow, great day in Glen Lyon. Weather superb, views from Glencoe all the way across to Ben Nevis!!! Long walk to bag 2 munros but well worth the effort. :D :D

A great day it was indeed. I think the panoramic views from Meall Buidhe make it into my top 3 in Scotland :)

As you say, very impressive view towards Glencoe and The Ben, as well as the snow-capped Cairngorms :)

I wonder if I walked past you at any point?

I carried on to the Corbett of Cam Chreag instead of the other Munro, though.

Don't know if we passed you, were you the owner of the lovely Porche in the car park!!!!!!!!! Some great views though, best day yet for me i think. Lots still to do and see though.

Yeah, sure the Porsche was mine, why not? :lol: :wink:

I was parked just after the gate as used the track there to go up to the bealach between Meall Buidhe and Cam Chreag.

Were you the two guys having us to shut the gate behind you? :lol:

It was a fantastic day, you probably passed us looking like tourists on Stuc Na Lochain huffing and puffing to #36 for me and #1 for the wife,

Must admit the Porsche was ours :-) honest!
