Three Peaks from the house

Given there were some hills out of our back garden, this seemed too good an opportunity to miss.

Difficulty: 3.2
Walkers: Tim, Caroline, Poppy (12)
13:10, 0.0km 0h00 0m, Start (18)
17:25, 8.8km 4h15 572m, End (24)

Setting off we seem to have found the path, our house is in view next to the loch.

It was quite hot, so Piper was glad to find a puddle.  Turns out we weren't on the path, so it was very slow going over rough ground.

Finally up our first destination - Meall nan Cnaimhean. Great views looking north west.

Onwards to our next destination, the top of that ridge.

Piper at the top of Beinn Ghormaig.

Waiting for Caroline to catch up after taking photos of the view looking north west.

Piper at the top of our third mini-peak, Beinn Ithearlan.

From here you can make out the Cuillin Munros in the middle of the horizon

Finally heading back down to the house we found the path that we had been aiming at on the way up.  Unsurprising we lost it, since it went through thick heather with no visible signs...
