Having done some very big walks I must say that this one packs a lot into 11km !

On the way to the Lost Valley we missed the burn crossing and went onto the scree slope, even more embarrassing that two groups followed us. We had followed another group as well. Lost 20mins or so and nice note to self about not letting others guide the way.

Cracking day though, great weather, lots of friendly folks around.

Incremental note - the path up/down to the lochans is really badly worn near the waterfall, def worth taking your time !

I've had a few great walks this year- ring of steall, SGS Ridge, brothers ridge, sisters ridge, but the day on Bidean would be close to the top.

I've also got a list of '" notes to self" :D
