The three Cairnwell Munros, by the Walk Highlands route. Added a couple of minor tops which were just off the route and extended west to Carn Bhinnein. This was the best summit of the day IMO - how often the Munro Tops are better than the main summits.Crib Goch20/10/2015
Is it just me, or does this one look like Arthur's Seat? We arrived from Carn a'Gheoidh; then descended east down an easy grassy slope and continued east up an unmapped track to the Carn Mor col.Pete R17/10/2015

A fantastic day out in the hills, I could not believe we had summited as quick as we did, a nice breeze kept us cool. Bird watching with Ben saw Meadow Pippet, Wheatear, Dotterel & 3 Ravens. In Glen Taitneach we saw at least 300 red deer just stunning. SMHC club walk one of the bestLizzieG22/07/2013
