The forecast was OK without being great, promising without any cast iron guarantees. Further east seemed best, but most of my options meant going west. So I set off with a few options being kept open, but it was basically a case of heading for Crianlarich and then making a decision - west towards Loch Lomond or further north towards Glen Lochay and Rannoch Moor.
Ultimately I settled on the Graham of Beinn na Sroine with the option of then heading up to the twin Sub2Ks either side of the road on the edge of Rannoch Moor.
After a straight up and down of the Graham from Glen Lochay (punctuated by a text message from Bod), I headed up to Rannoch Moor where I parked right on the Argyll/Highlands line. I was up and down Meall Mor within the hour (allowing for a decent amount of faffing around time at the monument and then the nearby summit) before returning to the car and deciding against popping across the road to Glas Bheinn in favour of a pint at the Bridge of Orchy Hotel instead.
