The weather forecast was optimistic, driving from Stirling I could see lots of blue patches, strange stuff not seen for a long time and I caught sight of a fiery object in the sky when I got out the car, with some heat being generated. I had heard rumours it was summer time, was it here at last?
Parked at Ardchullardie and took right of way up past Beinn Each then climbed slope to ridge between it and Stuc a'Chroin. Went up Ben Each from the north side, much easier than the signposted route.
Then over to Stuc a'Chroin. The path follows a fence line most of the way, which meant up and down a lot. Like Vorlich, lots of scree near the top. Lunch and drinks while taking photos.
Back down same way, but cut across under the crags to join path further along.
Went back down same way I came up but cut further over and joined track at top of Glen Ample. The walk back from here was hot as the fiery object was back out in force and no wind down here.Some burn water over my bald head to cool down.
Glad to get back to the car, was a long exhausting day.
