Used the Walking Highlands route for the start of this hike. Tough going on the initial climb to the Sgorr Bhan/Beinn Bhan ridge deep heather/scrub to negotiate, from there on it was plain sailing. Looked like a bigger descent from Shorr Bhan to the col but closer up it was insignificant, the ridge to Sgorr Dhearg that had looked terrifying was now looking like a nice easy walk & it was. Privilege to stand on the top with amazing clear views all around, even The Ben was clear. Descent to the col at 757m had me picking up a geocache, then the climb to Sgorr Dhonuill & the aprehension of the exposure at the top. A brilliant mountain day & munros #134 135LizzieG07/11/2016
