Fantastic double Munro-bag. prow on Stuc a' Chroin was amazing...we had to climb it on our hands and knees (proper scrambling) and very steep drop. great views from the top of both Munros including the William Wallace mounument in Stirling. Two great Munros but the boggy path in Coire Bhuide was a bit of a pain...still shouldn't complain. Walked by David(16), Sarah(16) and Alice(13)
