We left Crianlarich Hotel at aprox 08:00 and headed for Victoria Bridge . The weather looked grim and i thought here we go again another grim walk where you don't see much. As we arrived at the carpark i could see that the munro's to the east were all covererd in blue sky so i thought we have a chance of getting some kind of a good day although the top half of Stob Ghabhar was shrouded in mist . 08:45 we all set out heading for th hill bypassing the green hut and from there turning right. As i already done the first munro we decided after 1 1/2 miles to branch of the path and turned left crossing the river (NO BRIDGE) and moved directly towards Stob Ghabhar following the old fence posts along the way. The higher we got the weather improved and everything apart from the north started to open up and the views started to be fantastic so out came the cameras clicking every few seconds..300m from the top all the views has gone and all we could see was the ground beneath our feet. Eventually the summit came and i had a roll of honour from a few of my freinds and Bro's and sister and Bro in law. Out came the Champaigne and offererd some to the mist if it would clear off for a bit but said i don't stick and drink i only move and drink oh well more for me. After 20mins or so we started to head back doon and again after 300m we were blessed with clear blue skies with great views all around Once back at the carpark it was time to go our seperate ways...What next???? Corbettes No thanks.Munro's mmmmmnot for a few years anyway ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh weignwrights mmmm good idea 2 hours drive from the hoooose
