We had a rest yesterday, having compleated round 2 the day before... so decided to top up our Munro count for the year :wink: These 4 takes us to 100 for 2017 :D Since we're 'banking' for round 3, but only the hills that we've both done 3 times, we were starting this round on 15 done already before this walk :)

This time we went for a reverse loop, going anti-clockwise with Geal Charn first. My GPS tracking hadn't started, so only switched this on part way up first climb when I realised :( We parked in the big truck-top across the A9, and started with most of the road walk. Sunshine and views to start, then clagged in for the final summit before it turned freezing :shock: then finished with a short road walk back.
