35. Meall Chuaich (214) 10/08/2007

This was a jolly pleasant afternoon stroll. After being delayed for 3 hours on the train, we walked out of Dalwhinnie at 4ish and were looking for a campsite in the bealach at the back of the hill. We got to the top in the early evening, having left our packs at the campsite and had great views for miles around. We could see through to Ben Alder and north to the Cairngorms. We sighted our route south for the following day, before making our way down to camp, where we were plauged by midge. "That's not a rain shower outside the tent, Oliver, that's the midge."
