I completed the White Mounth Munros circuit in bust boots, started from Ballater and walked 8 miles out to Glen Muick. From Glen Muick I wandered 2 miles along Loch Muick to Glas-allt-shiel bothy where I had lunch before starting the big ascent by the waterfall to bag Lochnagar, Carn a' Choire Bhoidheach, Carn an t-Sagairt Mor, Cairn Bannoch and Broad Cairn.

It took me 11 hours in total, I must have walked about 26 miles, a long day but got great weather for it which was a bonus. I had the mountains all to myself only passing 1 person who was out for a jog. I had planned to make it back to Ballater for the last bus but later realised there was no way that was happening. Luckily I managed to get a phone signal and called a mate to come and pick me up, which cost £30 for the privilege. If I had known it was going to take me as long then I would have brought my camping gear.
