Helen and Paul picked me up and we were headed for Auchessan to walk the two munros there, but got to Glen Ogle on the A84 and joined a massive queue of vehicles waiting for an accident to be cleared up. We decided not to wait so turned back to Balquhidder and drove to Inverlochlarig to do a walk there. They had never been up Stob Binnein and it is one one of my favourite hills and pretty dry too. So we simply followed the path all the way to the top. We had our lunch on the ridge with good views all around. It was indeed good under foot, my summer boots were untroubled, damp only from a small passing shower. It was a cool wind though when the sun was hidden behind dark clouds. The view came and went as we walked along the ridge finally clearing just as we got to the bottom of the final slope to the top.

Great views came and went as we hung around to catch the gaps in the clouds we could see coming over. Eventually lifted and satisfied, we headed back down.
