An excellent day's walking in the Mamores, taking in three Munros (two of which were new ones for me).
Distance: 14km; Ascent: 1800m; Mainly dry with occasional sunshine; Solo
After an evening train journey up to Glasgow last night, I arrived at the Premier Inn that I had booked to find that it was very new, having only been open since Monday! I sorted out my backpacking gear and headed to bed. This morning I made an early start at 6am, dropped off my non-backpacking stuff in the luggage room, and wandered across the road to catch the first bus of the day to Fort William.
A three hour bus journey then followed, with intermittent snoozes and also some spectacular views at times! I arrived into Fort William just before 10am and after a quick trip to the supermarket for last minute supplies, I got a taxi up Glen Nevis to the Lower Falls carpark, which was the starting point of my walk today.

N.B. At some point during the next week I will be editing this post to include more photos and a route map of the day's walk. Post updated on 11/09/12 to include route map, photos and links to hills; post date also altered to actual date of walk (from 07/10/12).
