then after a well deserved break i decided to do the long slog to Meall Garbh the route wasnt the easiest very boggy and wet but once at the top it was worth it
after sitting at the top for 10 minutes staring at An Stuc i decided to give my first attempt at scrambling a go but after getting about half way up the ground started giving way and the final straw was when a rock i was holding onto gave way and i was left hanging with one hand so i decided to play it safe and go back the route i came

There is a faint trace of a path which connects the lower section of the path across the north side of Beinn Ghlas to the An Stuc/Lawers col (Bealach Dubh) which you might find useful! Alternatively, you can reach the Bealach Dubh from the Lochan nan Cat side without much difficulty. A final option (and maybe the finest way of doing An Stuc only) is to start from Camusvrachan in Glen Lyon, follow the track up the Allt a' Chobhair and climb the very pleasant (though pathless) NW ridge of An Stuc.
