Started at Kinlochleven. A long trek up to Binnein Mor but well worth it, a magnificent mountain, staring down at me, daring me to challenge it. Clear on top. Across to Na Gruagaichean which stubbornly remained shrouded in cloud all day. Gentle ascent down the South Ridge and then steeper South West (there's a cairn to guide you). Overshot the gate in the deer fence at GR NN 1910 6390 and had to follow it for some distance as it's the only way out. Down the track to Mamore Lodge which was boarded up and had seen better days and then took the path back to Kinlochleven with a slight detour to the Grey Mares waterfall. The 6.30 bus turned up half an hour late as there had been a drunk on the bus in Fort William and the driver had to call the police.tsharp01/05/2019
