Great weather for my 50th munro. After steep climb up the grassy hill side, I was relieved to reach the summit of Ben More. Fantastic views to Ben Lui and Ben Nevis in the distance. After celebrating with a jelly baby (my friend Barrie forgot the brandy flask) we made the descent and then continued on to Stob Binnein before our return. The following day I unexpectedly completed my first solo munro, Beinn Chabhair, after Barrie had knee problems. So I was pretty pleased with it all.
