Just a quick report on a great walk up to An Stuc via Meall Greigh & Meall Garbh.

The weather was cloudy on the peaks as we left the carpark at the Lawers Hotel.

The climb up Meall Greigh was quite steep, but as with all steep climbs the views open up quickly

Eventually we have made it up to the top. We had been sheltered from the wind on the way up, but it was a bit blustery up here. An Stuc was still in the clouds.

Facing us now was the climb up the steep face of An Stuc. Not too difficult but still a bit of a challenge.

After An Stuc we dropped down to Lochan Nan Cat and back across boggy ground until rejoining the path back to the Lawers Hotel.
