If the pics are anything to go by, it was a truly memorable experience. And the icing on the cake must be that the beasties were asleep next to the Loch (they definitely weren't elsewhere in the Highlands!).

You'll be completely hooked now.....

I did the four a while back and recall at the time thinking what a beautiful spot that Loch would be for a camp. The round itself was pretty good too as with so many of the less spectacular hills (being polite :wink: ) further detailed investigations or alternatives routes can make fro rewarding trips like yours. Great stuff :D :D


Thanks Dave. I first noticed it in May 2014, and have since seen a couple of trip reports of that exact spot. There are a couple of other nice grassy "platforms" around the edge as well. It was a wonderful experience though, even if the 24 hour grouse calls were a minor irritation :lol:

I think they may be awake tomorrow. I'm heading up to Linn of Dee, and if past midge experience is anything to go by it'll be a record time for getting out of the car and walking :lol: :lol:
