Did this walk anticlockwise today to rebel against being told to walk clockwise to minimise erosion. I mean come on! Meall na Aighean W top, Meall na Aighean, Meall Liath, Carn Mairg, Meall a'Bharr, Meall Garbh E Top, Meall Garbh, An Sgorr, Carn Gorm. Also 2 swims, one at pool below rickety bridge & one in River Lyon at the allowed carpark. Enjoyed my rebellious walk.Lynnebe26/07/2023
The Glen Lyon Horseshoe from Invervar, following the estate instruction to do the route in a clockwise direction, taking in the 4 Munros and most of the Tops. Parking in the car park is now reserved for residents in the summer season, so all walkers must use the large layby 1 km to the west. Visited Carn Gorm, An Sgorr, Meall Garbh, Meall Garbh E Top, Meall Luaidhe, Meall a'Bharr, Carn Mairg, Meall Liath, Meall na Aighean E Top, Meall na Aighean, Meall na Aighean W Top. Splendid weather with views from Ben Nevis to Ben Macdhui. 27km with 1700m ascent, taking 10 hours.silveracorn_alan01/06/2023

Car park full so kept going West until a big layby with room for quite a few around 0.75 miles along, any cars parked on the verges were ticketed when we returned. Lovely day down low, miserable wind up top, relentless for the round, got the 4 and a few topsPDuncan8225/06/2022
Started from the carpark behind the telephone box at Invervar. Arrived at 07:30 and were the 2nd car in a carpark that only holds around cars. Great weather and easy walking on mainly good paths. Completed the circuit of 4 Munros in 6 hours.gneill20/06/2022
Glen Lyon Horseshoe from InvervarGary Heath02/06/2022
Càrn Gorm, Meall Garbh, Càrn Mairg and Creag Mhòr from Invervar. Solo. Damaged muscle made slow progress but with care the route was completed successfully. Note. 6 spaces in car park in Invervar only. Village now a clearway for 2 miles, no parking available outside of car park which is not enough spaces. Car park apparently closed during stalking season meaning no parking. Estate signs unwelcoming, telling you to stay on path, follow markers and go in defined direction!meltdiceburg01/06/2022

Parked at Invervar. Started off cloudy was very windy on Carn Gorm. As we left the summit the cloud started to lift and break. The rest of the route was in glorious sunshine with a breeze and great views. We saw a Golden Plover, Meadow Pipits and Stonechats. Took in 4 Munro’s the 3 tops and deleted top. Cooled off in a muddy pond full of tadpoles and pond skaters. Only saw 2 people on the tops. Time taken 7 hours 20 minutes for 12.75 miles.isabelle18/08/2021
