Simply superb :D :clap: :thumbup:

A fantastic effort and your photos certainly capture the stunning beauty of the area :D

I was up on Tom a'Choinich and Toll Creagach on the Saturday admiring the western Affric hills as well as those north of Mullardoch. Once the clag lifted it was certainly a smashing day :D Already planning my return :D :D

If I can get my backside in gear you might recognise some of the views in my photos once posted :lol:

Another classic Rocks. I could have been tempted joining you in this weather although i'm starting to think i might finish off the Mullardoch ones in stages and then do the full round if and when i complete the Munros. :D

Ah you beat me to it...this walk has been in my mind for months but not had the opportunity yet.

Stunning photos and all round fantastic report.

That must have been some going with that pack on your back but I'm guessing the dry clear weather and inversions lightened the load somewhat.

Surely TR of the month (if your eligible that is)

Well done on an epic undertaking :clap:

Brill RH and you picked the right weekend for it. This is definitely going into the favourites folder for when I get round to doing it. :clap: Was originally thinking of doing it as 2 dayer but after reading your report I think yours is the best strategy.

Loved the piccies in general but especially the one with the weasel and the one with the gate!

As a matter of interest, how much and what food did you take?
