Major track widening going on with many JCBs -why? 15th of 21 summits on a 14 hour overnight bagging adventure on the shortest night. Left Attadale at 6.45pm night bfore then 15 kms of lonely rough grass and bog over 11 assorted tops to reach Bendroniag Bothy at 11.15pm in rain and last of daylight for a 4 hour rest / 'sleep' on wooden floor in thin sleeping bag. Left at 3.30am at first light for 10 more tops and 18km back to Attadale for 9.00 am. Cold Rain came on here -multi -topped summit. - headed westChris Pearson22/06/2016
