Meall Tairneachan and Farragon Hill

Nice to see the snow again

Two miles of pushing a bike uphill, but a lot easier on the way back!

Much steeper than it looks, had to push the bike all the way.

First sight of the first hill.

Schiehallion, somewhat dominant most of the day.

Meall Tainreachan getting closer, and a bit I could actually cycle along.

Farragon Hill, looking a long way off

More steep roads, and Meall Tainreachan

From one of the summits, looking to Farragon Hill and beyond.

Yep, Schiehallion

The other top, and Schiehallion

Having made the effort I think the other top might be higher!

Farragon Hill still a long way off, bike dumped as it was downhill, and a lovely open cast mine site

And some other mining.

End of the road, and Farragon finally getting closer

On the final ascent, looking back to Schiehallion

The second summit for the day.  And glorious.

Another view of Farragon Hill from the mine site, before the last walk up hill back to the bike and home.
