Epic trip, great report and some very nice photos - giving me ideas for the future but think I'd want a full, long summer's day as I'd need more time :D

Great report. Very useful, even if it was over 4 years ago. I like the look of the route because it's a long one, but with plenty of escape options along the way. Glen Etive is top my agenda for the coming week.

Well done on doing this in 9 hours, if you're reading, dooterbang.

Yep these are great hills, particularly if the weather's good. Was up there a week ago , but from the Creise direction, and had similarly wonderful weather (untroubled by cyborgs..., fortunately :D ). Unfortunately, due to gross incompetence, I managed to overlook Aighanen....

Great report, and fantastic piccies - such a wonderful place....
