Drove up early and on hill about 6:30am! Warm sunny day, even at that time. Climbed up north ridge of Ben Starav and enjoyed the wee bit of scrambing near the summit. Descended to the col and decided to tackle Beinn nan Aighenan. Lost a far bit of height to the next col before I hauled my sweaty bum up the SSE ridge to the next summit. Had a wee sleep in total silence. Descended back to col at Ben Starav and continued east to Glas Bheinn Mhor, struggling by now and running out of water. From the summit walked east along ridge and dropped to the Allt Mheuran following the path down. Filled up water bottle, took off boots and socks and had a paddle in the cold water, great. Eat last of sandwiches before putting boots back on to continue back to car and the drive home for a bbq and beer, Great day.
