Walk 6:30:00 [0] 19.0 km (20:32 / km) +1400m 15:00 / km

Up before the sun cleared the hills today, knew the car park in Invervar was quite small. There long before 8, but tragically so was everyone else it seemed!

Had breakfast parked on the verge, then set off up. Almost immediately stopped to strip off - above the mist hanging in Glen Lyon, it was another beautiful day.

Sweaty stuff up Carn Gorm, though once up on the grassy ridge it was ideal conditions, fast walking with a gentle breeze. Views for miles to the Cairngorms and over Rannoch Moor, Glen Coe looking especially magnificent (but I imagine it was hoaching)

Meall Garbh passed without incident, and stopped for a picturesque lunch on the tor on Carn Mairg before picking up Creag Mhor for the final Munro of the day. Legs ruined by the descent back down, but for sure earned ourselves the fish and chips for tea.

An extremely enjoyable day out, and weekend. Glad to get the weekend in the dying days of Summer, and before the looming spectre of a second lockdown
