Having decided earlier in the week that i wanted to have a go at some of the mamores hills,i set off for kinlochleven on satarday morning still not sure what route id choose.my first idea was to climb Na Gruagaichean first then head for An Gearanach,Stob coire a chairn and Am Bodach.But once on the top of Na Gruagaichean i thought about heading east instead and doing the ring of steall another day.

or this way?so i made up my mind and headed for Binnien Mor,i though this was a great wee ridge on route to the summit,great fun clambering over the boulders at the top aswell.Some nice views of ben nevis from here

now on to Binnien Beag which looks tiny from up here.

Again the route up this hill was really enjoyable and i had a sit down for a bit in the cairn at the top,now onto Sgurr Eilde Mor,i met a group of other walkers on the way and one of the guys was going for his 200th munro on Binnien Beag,well done to you sir,i seen you getting to the top from Sgurr Eilde Mor,the scree slope on this hill looked a bit dodgy from below but once it was reached it was fine,now for the long walk back out to kinlochleven,just time for a couple of pics before the rain starts
