A quick to the point report. Parked car in small car park next to NTS car park. I got there 8.50 4 cars in car park big enough for a dozen cars. Cycled along the private road until I got to just past the bothy. 95% of the road is tarred. It certainly makes for a shorter day.i did the circuit as described in the WH route. It took 2 hrs from leaving the car to be standing on the summit of Thuilm. Another 85 min took me to the summit of Sgurr Nan Coireachan. Most of the way round is a faint track or easy to follow fenceposts. Its a wee bit scrambly on the initial decent of Sgur nan Coireachan but not too bad. Back at the car at 2.20. Car park Jammed full. Great day out would certainly do it again.

Kind of sums up the weather misty and atmospheric.
