    I didn't say I wouldn't carry stuff, more than happy to. But I ain't lugging my Dreamcatcher down bag, Robens challenger 2 man tent, roll mat and Colemans basic stove round 6 Munros.

    I don't mind carrying stuff (I get used to it, doing alpine treks), recently did a wild camp on my Grey Corries/Aonachs walk.

    Thinking about exploring the Black Mount and Glen Etive areas in October.

    Sorry I didn't mean to repost that, think it happened when I clicked refresh on the page on my phone (made my last post from a computer) and then couldn't work out how to delete it.

    Well I now have a plan. Drive up to Dalwhinnie on Friday leaving Stoke at 12:30 and cycle into Culra bothy and stay there on the Friday and Saturday night (hopefully finding it before it gets dark!). Tick off the 6 local Munros over sat and sun - Carn Dearg, Geal Charn, Aonach Beag and Beinn Eibhinn, and also Ben Alder and Beinn Bheoil. Head home Sunday night / Monday morning, maybe staying with a friend in Glasgow Sunday night and get back to Stoke by 1pm Monday.

    Anyone welcome to join me, especially someone wanting to lift share from Stoke! Although obviously not a big group due to the bothy part of the plan.

    Hi Sarah,

    sounds like you've got a nice plan there. Hope the weather plays ball for you

    Another option you should consider if you want to bag a bundle is the Mamores. The 10 can easily be ticked off in a long weekend or even a day if you're fit. As Sean said, the south Glen Shiel ridge has 7. Wild camping enroute makes these very nice outings. There's also the Ben Lawers ridge which has 5

    Good luck with the target

    Sarah, have you considered doing a hill on the day that you drive back?

    If the weather is favourable, you could do one of the easier ones and still be back in Stoke by 7pm.
