    I was there the very following day - lovely sunny morning - short sleeve
    T-shirt on top of Carn Liath - by Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain it was
    blowing a blizzard from the East. Now I see what I didn't see on Carn
    nan Gabhar - which by the way was 283.

    There's now a decent indian restaurant at the bottom of
    Back Bray, which I find preferable to the other places
    along the quay which vary from greasy spoon to
    pretentious sh!te, all over-priced.

    This plan sounds good to me. Do we have a campsite lined up yet?
    I expect to be in the area from the Monday depending on the holiday crowds,
    might look to do Ben Nevis on Tuesday 2nd.

    I am assuming the Craignure site at NM 72375 36655. There is one near
    Tobermory at NM 49285 54450 - convenient for the curry house. The only
    other one I can see on the map is at Fidden NM 30225 21425 - which is a
    bit out of the way, although convenient for the Iona ferry.

    Does anyone have any inside knowledge as to which is the best one?

    The Tobermory site is the cheapest
