Another glorious sunny and very warm day in The Highlands. Karen and I off for another long route to add to Karen's Munro tally. Most folk climb Beinn Bhrotain & Monadh Mor from The Linn of Dee side of The Cairngorms but as always we like to head out on longer and interesting routes. In fact there isn't much difference in mileage starting from Achlean in Glen Feshie which was our start point today. The excellent path up toward Carn Ban Mor soon gets you onto the huge plateau of the Moine Mhor ( The Great Moss).  One look on the map and with the name of 'moss' may well have you thinking you're in for a right old bog trot but the reality is it's superb walking over lovely grassy ground and most of the route to the Munros is on good tracks, some of which aren't marked on maps. I've only ever done these two hills in winter so it was a nice change.
