The aim of the day was to do Ben More, but this was before i invested in crampons, got half way up and had to give up, so rather than have a wasted day i decided to give Beinn nan Imirean a go. It was a good choice as unlike Ben More the snow was soft and the hill not as steep and the sky was clear blue, perfect walking conditions.
I started the walk from Auchessan and headed up the middle of Beinn nan Clach and Meall Garbh and onto Beinn nan Imerean.Not much more to say about the route, so hope you enjoy the photos.

Hi Johnny, certainly looked a good clear day for walking. Shame about Ben More but sensible to turn back if you haven't got the gear - it'll still be there for a few more years. :)
