Pete I was planning a similair trip for those dates.
Monday - Currour via train arriving around lunch time. Carn Dearg - Sgor Giaghre and on to Ben Alder Cottage.
Tuesday - Beinn Bheoil - Ben Alder and onto Culra Lodge.
Wedensday - Same without Beinn na Lap (done it).

My knees are a wee bit dodgy and I am well out of shape at the moment so I dont think I could manage the mammoth trip you have got planned!

I will probably see you at Culra!

Cheers Peter

Hi Peter

Your plan is my reserve plan in the event its too hot or I have bitten off more than I can chew or I just fancy an easier trip. Beinn na Lap will only get done if I have time before the train. Would be good to meet someone off MM

Due to weather we are now looking to leave wed/thu. Tuesday looking like a washout. Then slowly improving towards the end of the week.
