Length: Approx. 282 miles/454km. Perhaps a few miles longer on the ground - I used Mapometer to work it out. I reckon it will take me around 3 to 4 weeks. Overall I think this is about the right size of challenge - not on the scale of a Brown or Hewitt, but a bit more than say the average TGO Challenge route with a few more hills on the way.
Munros en route: 31.
Corbetts en route: 14
A lot of heathery peathagged lumps up to Dalwhinnie, then some characterful classics thereafter. Here they are in the order they'd be climbed on an anti-clockwise walk (Corbetts in italics; an asterisk means they're a short detour from the watershed, usually c.1km, and can be easily included in the route):

Calories expended: 20,624 according to Mapometer. That's apparently around 73 Mars bars.
