Saturday 15th May 2010 and I met Peter Adams and we headed for the hills. Due to rain, we dingied Ben Lui and went up the A82 to Bridge of Orchy where we tackled firstly the 3500 feet Beinn Dorain and then the 3300 feet Beinn a Dothaidh as both are linked via a 2300 feet Bealach. We met Rob, who was walking the West Highland way at the top of Dorain - he climbed the front of that monster! He accompanied us up munro 2.

Bit of snow to traverse as we reach the snout of Dorain
Lots of munros in view from here
