Quick trip for the Wee Bookil - back at the van in 3hrs 45 (8.87km, 972m ascent) and the sun was still shining 8) :D Busy up there today!
So we headed round to Glen Nevis next, planning to go for the last Mamore and it's Top, to clear up our red balloons in this area... only a navigational 'hiccup' had us heading up the other side of the river, taking a steep shoulder up to Stob Ban :o Thought about skirting under to get back to the MnC Top, but we were so close plus the sun was still shining 8) so we carried on up Stob Ban first :lol: Looped around and took the gentle shoulder back down MnC - very boggy at the bottom, so we were glad we'd gone in this direction after all :thumbup: Stats for this: 5hrs 44, 12.5km, 1220m ascent Phew! Glad of the campervan so we didn't need to drive home til the next day :D
