Circuit of Ben Lawers. I decided to start and finish at Camusvrachan so that i could not worry about car shuttle's. I intended to return via Meall Garbh but bailed out a valley as it was dark and late. I would not recommend this as its clear stalking takes place (in stalking season) and it gets quite treacherous towards the lower half.

A really fantastic way to bag 7 in a day, but next time i would park at Lochan la Lairige and end at the Ben lawers hotel.
