Long trek into the land of the deer

With our Calum from Inverey on the bikes via Colonels Bed (cp17)to Altanour Lodge (cp16) for a fairly impromptu hill day. Carrying bivvying stuff in case of “opportunities”. Hard work..

Dumped the bikes and kept up a very decent pace up the first hill and onwards not seeing a soul from start to finish. Pretty windy and very chilly at times with intermittent cloud on the tops. Huge numbers of deer and quite a few hares about.
Carn Bhac: 1.08
Beinn Iutharn Mhor: 2.17  (cp15)
Carn an Righ: 3.15
Glas Tulaichean: 4.13
An Socach: 5.32
Decided against a bivvy in the end.

Didnt seem like as much downhill once back on the bikes as it should have!
