Ben Starav is a hard slog up but worth it when you get there, was a bit tired from the hard walk the day before and set off a little late so didn't have time to do the other munro usually done with this one. As usual heres my route and a few pictures.

I'm planning to head up there on Saturday, so thanks for the pictures. I was wondering if there was any snow left. Looks like I can leave the ice axe behind!

I've already bagged Ben Starav in winter, but need to go back to tick off the remaining 2 of the group and seems silly not to revisit Starav whilst there. Just hope the weather holds...
