Liri- I met one couple as they were coming back, and another chap who'd passed me just before the first Munro - also returning the same way. You can do a different route back by descending south west off Easain, but it involves a bog trot back and it's generally advised to come back by the outward route. I think the recent very dry weather meant that quite a few people did that, as the car park was quite busy. Some walkers might have been doing the two hills on the other side of Loch Treig though.
I talked for ages to the chap doing the checkpoint for the girl running the Ramsay Round - I mentioned it on the Forker thread. They do 24 Munros in 24 hours She's actually in one of my other pix ( the approach to Mheadhoin) with her two man support , but they're so far ahead of me you can barely see them
To be honest - I don't like the satnav. I mainly use it as a compass, and for the trip computer as it gives you the stats - how far, how long moving and how long stopped etc. Handy for checking you're at the right summit too as it gives you the height!
Always have maps, route description and sometimes route reports by other people as well as a standard compass.
