I took more or less the identical route myself when I did it in May 2014, with the slight difference that I cycled down to the start . Cheating perhaps, but I hate metalled roads

I'm really happy that you had such a good condition for this trip especially after some previous misty or wet trips. Really glad...I know you were planning the trip in advance and the weather played for you
Great walk in great area...sure you enjoyed the views in that visibility ! You deserved that.
Beautiful photos and something to remember

Thank you for all your responses. The more I look at the picture’s, the more I realise that I am quite a lucky man. The weather was simply great! That way, you were able to see so many beautiful things. Everywhere you looked, you saw mountains, sun and blue skies. Views I will never forget.
I thoroughly enjoyed walking alongside the A87. I was a little a afraid of the traffic. Afterwards, there was no need to worry. Luckily I started walking very early in the morning, so there wasn’t a lot of traffic. Cycling would have been easier, but I decided to leave my bicycle in Holland. My personal goal is to reach the foot of all the Munro’s by walking or by public transport. I’m doing great so fear, but I have still got a long way to go.
You can find a few pictures of the journey in the attachment down below.
