Parked up in the car park at Invervar. I followed the Invervar burn, which is beautiful. Then took the path to the right after the tree line. Headed East to the Munro of Meall nan Aighean (981m). Continuining on to the top Meall Liath (1012m), then th...e Munro of Carn Mairg (1041m). Followed the ridge round to the top of Meall a Bharr and onto the Munro of Meall Garbh. Finally took in the top of An Sgorr (924m) and the final Munro of Carn Gorm (1029m). Got some nice sunrise pictures at the start of the walk, the weather began to close in and after the first summit I was in cloud cover until my decent off of Carn Gorm, it's very appropriate that it translates as blue hill as that was the colour of me by this time :-) Took 6 1/2 hours to complete.
