Well to start with who said these are easy?
Set off from ski centre about 09:15 set of up Carn Aosda got there in about 40 mins arrgghh that's steep.
Face now bright red and sweat stinging my eyes, time to take the fleece off, it's heating up, or maybe it's just me. Turns out to be a great day clear skies......ish in parts.

Set of for great walk along to the 2nd munro Carn a' Gheoidh. This gave me time to get the heart rate back down and take some great snaps of Loch Vrotachan.

Onto the summit and making good time. Time for another photo session.

After a 20 min break onto the Cairnwell, missed out Carn nan sac due to the poor views on offer, leave it for another day.

Onto the cairnwell and time for more snaps.
