Walked this on a glorious Saturday when the weather forecast was totally wrong to our benefit. We started off from the lay-by on the A82 just before Crianlarich and followed the landrover tracks up to where the forest ends on your left hand side where we headed down to an old rickity bridge to cross the burn. The climb from the burn up to Grey Height is quite boggy but when this is reached the going becomes much more interesting with rocky paths and ridges all the way to Cruach Ardrain.

Nothing new here as the racing snake (my son) has beat me to the top of Cruach Ardrain and is waiting with that face that says what took you so long.

The weather got better as the day went offering up some great views like this one looking back at Cruach Ardrain

Yeah to right, I had him up at Fort William at the weekend. We climbed four munros on the Saturday covering 27km, then took in the Ben on Sunday. The racing snake went up the Ben in 2hrs 15mins without breaking sweat
