Caught the bus from glasgow, off at tyndrum, took a right after crossing the railway, passed old lead mines on way up sron nan colan, on to meal odhar, passed newly opened gold mine on way up beinn chuirn, back on track to tyndrum. Not much more to say about this walk, just that it was a wonderful day on the hill -must have spent 2 hours on summit, dozing, enjoying views, watching deer & birds

That brings back wonderful memories for me. I thoroughly enjoyed this route when I did it last year. One of those magical summer evenings on the hills. Cheers! :D
