Hi weatherman, I'm pleased to find that you've went to the effort of reporting this walk. It has helped me plan my route for these two distant donalds! There doesn't seem to be official routes for quite a few of the donalds on here but I suppose part of the fun is finding your own way. :) I'm currently looking to put more of a dent in my total and might take a short stay in Stirling to bag the northerly ones. Might even find a few caches along the way! :D
