Like the look of the Beinn a' Ghlo 3, quoman.

Have you already tackled these 4? http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/perthshire/carn-mairg.shtml
Be a piece of cake for you I'd imagine.

Re: Johnny Corbett. I would second the suggestion for the Ring of Steall. There is a scramble up from the wire bridge as an alternative start that would be worth checking out.

Cracking report as ever Quoman. :D

Could well have bumped into you on Beinn A Ghlo on Tuesday but my walking buddy Jonny616 had been eaten by a bog monster on Sunday in Glen Lochay!!! I headed to Dalmally instead- got similar conditions to you guys. But no complaints really- mild, wind free walk wearing just a baselayer for most of it- in March!!!

Good luck with hitting 100 very very soon !!! :D

Excellent report quoman :D I liked these three hills when I did them :D Had the mist too at times, but didn't detract from a fine wander. Met three chaps on the final summit who had cycled to the top :shock: Insane in my book, but then us walkers probably share some of that insanity too :lol:

Good luck on the ton :D If you do Lochnager then I hope you get the weather for it :D Another fine circuit :D

Good luck with views for the hundred (and one!) Quoman! :) Beinn a'Ghlo was on my short-list for yesterday but went out to Loch Laggan instead. Also liking the Lochnagar set - planning to do this in April. Hope you get the weather, but enjoy it regardless! :lol:
