22nd. October, 2007:
A long journey up from Whitby dodging lorries on the A1 and circling southern Edinburgh had taken me longer than expected so, by the time I met Friend Toddy outside the Fortingall Hotel, it was mid-afternoon. We paused just long enough to check that we had necessaries like food, fuel, a stove and a tent and headed up the hill by devious paths to the north. It was going to be good to be out for four or five days or so.

After some messing around crossing the Allt Odhar and finding our way through some forestry, we eventually clambered onto the east south east ridge of Meall na Aighean and gained ground towards the summit in mist and a rising wind. Once on top, we didn't hang around but dropped off quickly to the north and camped in the upper reaches of Gleann Muilinn in the dusk.
Our plans were to head west towards the hills encircling upper Glen Lyon in the morning - but a full circuit of the glen is a massive undertaking and we doubted our ability to cover all that ground in the time available. We would have to see where we ended up...
