Nice one! A good approach on a good road and the paths are fine as well. I did the two main Ben Armine tops (Creag Mhor is still Ben Armine BTW) by bike from Kinbrace and out to Brora using the good path over the saddle between Creag a' Choire Ghlais and Creag Mhor. Easy to get to either top from there although the col is boggy.

Thanks Senja. Had transport allowed, I would have liked to traverse from the Crask Inn through to Badanloch via the two hills. The out and back was however enjoyable too :)

Good long wander there. Shame the cloud didn't lift on the summits, although the weather looked good otherwise :)

I found the midges really bad on Saturday night too - close to the worst I've ever known. On the other hand, Friday night had a lovely breeze and they were no bother at all.

Some wondeful photos/scenery. Enjoyed that. I take an old sony phone a small speaker that attaches to it for my musical camping evenings :D

Cheers.
