I parked in the large layby on the A82 and we set off near to 11am. You cross over the sty and cross over an incredibly boggy field and head under the small railway bridge. After this there is a good track to follow over a bridge.
You follow this track until you see a second ( very dodgy ) bridge. You take a left from the track over the bridge and follow the tree line up. This section was really boggy and at times almost over the gaitors !!
After the boggy section it was a steep wee climb up the first little hill, I think its called Grey Heights.
Once you get to the top its a good walk to a second small hill called Meall Dhamn. There is a clear path to follow now. On approaching the second hill Cruach Ardain comes into view for the first time.
A short time later Ben More and Stob Binnein poke their heads into view !!
You now follow a good path towards Cruach Ardain. The path seemed to go up then down etc
It was hard going but we were getting nearer.
The views were getting good to !
First look at Beinn Tulaichean on the way to Cruach Ardains summit.
Soon afterwards we were on the summit of Cruach Ardains and forthe time we were on the summit the mist came down !!
After much discussion we decided to head on and do Beinn Tulaichean ! On route you get great views of Ben More and Stob Binnein
We were then on the summit of Beinn Tulaichean
It was then a very long walk back to the car. Areal leg burner today and leaves me one short of getting to double figures !!!
