September 21, 2008 - took the side-route up from the visitor center so on the way up I sidestepped Beinn Ghlas and tackled Ben Lawers first. This offered great views from the north-west flank of Beinn Ghlas and my impression was that this path is much nicer. Seems less eroded compared with the path to the summit of Beinn Ghlas which I took on my way down. Conditions were really nice on that day - blue skies and sunshine with only a light breeze. Once up on the summit of Ben Lawers it was difficult to remain upright, though, since the breeze had turned into something more substantial :D . Nonetheless the views over Lochan an cat were beautiful and the thought of moving on towards An Stuc crossed my mind. But since clouds also started to roll in I decided to make a beeline back across Beinn Ghlas towards the visitor center. This was a very enjoyable walk - not really dcemanding at all since the starting point is already quite high up. Round trip across the two munros took me about 4 hours. Highly recommendable!
