Started this walk from Glen Loy near Inverskilavulin where a track takes you into the forest. Stob a' Ghrianain is waymarked and a ATV track leads through the trees to the open hillside. Here the track continues to a bridge and then up the hillside towards the ridge, ending just short of the ridge. The ridge is then followed to the summit. We returned down the Sron Liath ridge and the track back to the start. 4 hrs.

Hi Rod, yeah thats the track through the woods. The bridge phot took 4 attempts till i managed to get in after setting the timer. Kim was smiling was she was still laughing at my attempts to get in the photo. We had a good 20mins at that bridge. :D
