Nice rport and some nice pictures too. A route I need to re-visit as I had to bail out on the day I attempted these. Weather really came in when I was on Cairn Mairg :( At least you had the weather for this trip :D

To counter-balance that - one of the means of access control in Glen Lyon is the strict restriction of parking. With fencing to the road there is nearly no parking for miles. I don't think this is an accident ;)

Nice walk and good set of pictures Doogz. Like the flattened fence post given unrestricted views to Schehallion. :lol:

Yeah I can see your point Kinley but the people parked in some drives when there was ample parking a few hundred yards down the road

Gotta say getting out the car park almost blind due to cars on road too

But to each his own though

Cheers
