Sounds similar (although slightly worse!) than my trip up these 2 on the 25th Sep. (report on here).

Will definitely do again on a nice day!

You always know it's going to be wild when you park in pollubdh car park and you are the only car there, and then on your return note that you have only been joined by a 80 year old couple snoozing!!! :lol:

Strange that two great hills were so empty !!!!... It was the same the next day I climbed Buachaille Etive Mòr (admittedly on a Monday) and saw only 3 others - No that I am a hermit or anything BUT it's nice to have them to yourself every now and then !!!
