I parked by the road outside what I think was a closed down gift shop where there was plenty of space for parking along the road, a minute or so's walk to the start of the path.

First proper look of the ridge
I must admit, when I came to the first proper scramble I thought it looked a bit much for me so I decided to take the bypass route

Looking over to Bidein a' Ghlas Thuill
It's an easy walk over to the 2nd Munro and once there, I made the second mistake of the day. I should have taken the walk over the ridge to Glas Mheall Liath as it would have been another interesting walk and more direct route back to my car, Instead I went down the back to Dundonnell which left me a additional few miles walk.

The classic view of An Teallach
Definitely somewhere I'm going to return to and do the full ridge walk!

But yes I'd have to say its without doubt the best days walk Ive had, even though I missed the first summit, so much in awe at the scenery
