You can both from Mam Barrisdale and you should find somewhere to camp. The ground is a bit rough but there are grassier patches and you should be fine in a one-man tent.

It's a bit up-and-down to get to Ladhar Bheinn but nothing too tricky.

No idea what I'll be doing at this time next year but hope to make it.

These three munros have been on my "some day" list for a while so this meet will be the boot up the backside I need to make it happen.
I intend to walk in and out from Kinloch Hourn over two days each way but I have a couple of questions for those more familiar with the area and the terrain than I. The Mam Barrisdale bealach between Ladhar Bheinn and Luinne Bheinn at roughly 450m - are there any feasible wild camping spots up there or is Barrisdale Bothy pretty much the only show in town for breaking up the journey? And is it both possible and desirable to scuttle up and down Ladhar Bheinn from that bealach (the terrain looks quite challenging on the map) or is the Luinne Bheinn ridge the only one you'd realistically want to approach from there?
Cheers, Ross.

Between LB and LB, I camped just west of the 640m point (Stob na Muicraidh) above Coire a'Phuill. Various options for camping spot but not so many for water - I got water from the Allt Dubh om the way up but some others shown on the map were dry even in early May.

Put me down, please, and I'll sort myself out - I might try to stay to Monday anyway, as it makes no difference to the next leg.

Amazing response guys - anyone wanting a bunk so far should have been sent payment details via PM, give me a shout if I've messed up and you've not got them!

Sorry, I've been reminded that I'm already booked for that weekend - an annual thing that I hadn't taken in the date of.

If that falls through for lack of numbers I might be back! (I can always camp if necessary, I'm camping at HebCelt.)
