The three of us set off from the Dalmunzie House hotel at 8.45am heading north up Gleann Taitneach. After 1km we arrived at the bridge so we could pick up the track on the east side of the river. Except that the bridge had been washed away! We crossed easily enough though and legged it up the glen, passing a series of waterfalls, to the remote but beautiful Loch nan Eun. Then across some bog to pick up the footpath to Carn an Righ, 1029m. Views from the top were extensive, from The Lomonds in Fife to the south, to Beinn Avon in the north. We dropped back down to the Bealach then up to the summit of Beinn Iutharn Mor, 1045m, where Justyna tried out her new storm shelter. The weather had become increasingly sunny as the day wore on, although there was a chilly wind on the tops. Not having had enough yet we took in Beinn Iutharn Beag, 953m, on the way back to Loch nan Eun, and then retraced our steps back to the hotel. 8 and a half hours in total.
