Well this is the start of a long awaited week off work :wink: and as the Munros that I have still to do are a bit of drive away or require weekends away, I thought it was time I got more into the Corbetts as I do hope to complete them also :roll: So the week had a fairly good forecast for what I had planned and it started off at Ballimore Farm near Balquidder. Rather than just go straight up and back down the same route, I decided to do a loop going North from the summit toward Ceann na Baintighearna and skirting North East then a wee turn South East to get me back to the cattle sheds at the head of the Calair Burn then back on to the path on the South side of the Calair back to Ballimore
