Day 30 - Loch Rannoch to Dalwhinnie

This morning Dave Rogers & myself set off an hour earlier for Stob an Aonaich Mhoir as Manny, Archie & Sandra were taking their bikes as it was a tarmac road for 8 miles which meant that I could then take Manny's bike back while Manny & Dave set of for Beinn Mholach, Meall na Leitreach & The Sow of Atholl. They caught us up just 10 mins before we dumped the bikes and Manny, Dave & myself headed up Stob an Aoniach.

Then Sandra, Archie & myself cycled back to the campervan & cars and drove them to Drumochter to meet them. Dot arrived this afternoon and went up and met then at Meall na Leitreach summit before they headed off again for the Sow.

A very quick turn around forManny, (think it might have something to do with Dave being around) some food & drink and a 6 mile road cycle to Dalwhinnie where Manny & Dave then headed for The Fara with the mountain bikes for at 3 miles which will help the legs. It is a lovely night and the sun is even out.

He will start the day tomorrow with a cycle from Dalwhinnie to Dalnacadoch (A9) and mountain bike north via the Gaick Pass for An Dun & A'Chaornich.

Does that mean The Fara was bagged last night? If so, that was a great effort and should perhaps mean that the 2 hills at the top of Glen Tromie could be tacked onto today's outing.
