This was my first double Munrotrip. The report is from 2011 and has been posted on another site. I post it here as well to progress completing the distance walked statistics.

This is where I went up, between the two forest blocks from the Car parking a little east of Crianlarich. The view is good.

And this is some good ridge walking, looking backwards to the east not far from the summit of Ben More.

When the sun goes down in the west the lazy walker is enjoying best.

Then I just followed the tractorroad back to the farm.
