Congratulations :D :D

Nothing like leaving the most awkward till last! Loved these hills though - great area and a fantastic day to finish the Grahams 8) .

Having slogged through from Oban to Pean in awful flood conditions with an inflatable canoe on my back, I can appreciate what a bugger of a glen that is to walk through.

Well done on your completion - you certainly chose the weather to do it justice.
A good and helpful description of the route in - apart from the precarious path along the loch, which I think I remember from Malky's description, it sounds a good route and more scenic than the one we took.

You going to be finishing off those pesky Munro Tops now?

Thanks Malky_c, Collaciotach, rockhopper and weaselmaster.

Weaselmaster, I will probably try to complete a second round of Munros mopping up any outstanding Munro Tops in the process.

Congratulations from us, too! Great achievement! Some Grahams are tough cookies to chew. We have just reached 100 and some of them were more painful to bag than Munros... :lol:

Magic! I loved reading this report. It's a superb area, as I just recently discovered (Glens Dessary and Kingie), and absolutely unbeatable in weather like you had. These 2 hills have duly entered my "to do" list, along with Streap and Sgurr Thuilm!

BTW I was interested to read that you purify your water before drinking. Have you had some bad experience that's persuaded you that this is a good thing to do?

Thanks Alteknacker

Yes. To be fair I invested in a UV Steripen for a trip to Indian Himalaya so now also use it at home.
