I have just realised i have actually done 2 of those tops you did on Day 4. Beinn na Cille and Meall nan Each.
We used to stay with the Gillie on the Strut Estate in Kingairloch. I swam in the Loch on November the 5th, the Gillie said he had never been in the loch voluntarily.

Well done Alan, but why didn't you walk the complete round, it's a 'classic', with no technical difficulties beyond the steep initial slopes of Beinn na Cille?

You won't catch me anywhere near that cold loch water!

It was a while ago Martin and i can only think that the reason was the weather was lousy. I must try and dig out the photo's and check. (i may be gone some time).
