Access: Bike from Inverey to Altanour Lodge.
Route: This is an enlarged version of the walk here, which does not include Carn an Righ or Glas Tulaichean. It requires a good level of fitness and a long summer day because of the distance and the amount of ascent.

Connectivity: Orange on all tops.
Weather: 11°C at car, stiff breeze, overcast, occasional sharp showers.
