Munros included on this walk: A' Bhuidheanach Bheag, Carn na Caim
Date walked: 23/01/2011
Time taken: 4 hours
Distance: 20 km

Still, there's more to it than that right; no one can argue that completing all of the munros in Scotland is one heck of an accomplishment. And navigating the rounded largely featureless Drumochter hills in conditions like this isn't exactly easy either...
Fortunately the trusty compass bearing worked out okay and all was well; and what a view from the summit!
No time to hang about; it wasn't particularly warm so I high tailed it over to Carn na Caim where I was treated to another epic view...
Which just leaves the stats... It wasn't a day for hanging about and I covered the 20 km in just a shade over four hours, with very little time spent absorbing the view, and thankfully very little time lost!

Hi Monty - agree, these were an easy two, with the track making even lighter work of it... Navigation was definitely more challenging than the walk!

I think my strategy is going to be do the dull(er) hills on the bad weather days! Still good to be out in the fresh air though!
