Having to be back in Ardnamurchan for 6pm i opted for Gleann Etive and Beinn Starabh is Glas Beinn Mor which is only 1.5hrs away

Started out at 8am with an cú taking the "lead" as usual , promising forecast and dry !

It was lovely on the mullach and good views all round, I briefly skirted with the notion to do Meall na Eun then decided that three was enough for today

Enjoyed your report, particularly as Ben Starav is one of the few Munros that I've done and, obviously now, won't be adding anymore :D
Some great photos with lovely views, especially

I'm heading up to Glen Etive this September. I've got a bit of 'tidying up' to do around there.

Reading your report and seeing your great photos makes me be looking forward to then all the more.

Thanks for posting.
