For some unknown reason, both times I have been up these hills have been from Dalwhinnie :roll: . Never on such a spectacular day as that though! Great inversion and an impressive twilight finish :D .

Did you combine them with the Alder hills? Loch Ericht looked absolutely miles away from the summit of Sgor Gaibhre :shock:
