Great effort and well done on conquering the Fisherfields. I'm rather envious as would love to do them but can't find anyone daft enough to agree to come with me! :lol:

Why don't you break them down into 3 separately trips.

From the Fanniachs parking area past Braemore Junction and knock of Sgurr Ban

From Kinlochewe via the Heights of Kinlochewe to Fadha and get Tarssuin & Mullach

From Poolewe and get A"M & RSM

Some things are worth waiting for, and these are worth saving for a good day, even though I'm not a fair weather walker and your reputation is now in tatters :lol:
But great to see you complete these, when I return one day I'll be camping after the walk, as like you I walked out after the 5 and looking back, it would have been a better choice to stay the extra night.
Congratulations on a great WR, well chuffed for you :clap:

That is such a generous offer from you both - especially when you've already done them! :clap:

Inspired by your suggestion I'm hoping to go in from Kinlochewe to tackle Beinn Tarsuinn and MCMF, with a pal (who's approaching compleation and needs this 5) and my grandson (brave lad). It's a long walk but with an early start and without heavy packs I think it's worth a shot anyway. Watch this space... :think:

Kath it took us 3 and a half hrs with full packs to walk in via the Heights of Kinlochewe to Loch Fadha,from there a very good path climb's up to the bealach between Tarsuinn & MCMF....I'd tackle MCMF first tbh as it has some very mild scrambling then a boulder field, where as the climb to Tarsuinn is on grassy slopes.
On the way our with lighter packs we managed to walk out in 2 and a half hours
