Munros included on this walk: Ben More, Stob Binnein
Date walked: 05/08/2014
Time taken: 7 hours
Distance: 15 kmRegister or Login free to be able to rate and comment on reports (as well as access 1:25000 mapping).
I made it to the top of Stob Binnein within two hours though visibility was next to nothing (just my luck, the same can be said of my view from Ben Vorlich 9 days previous). I was in two minds about heading on to Ben More & had started to head back the way I came when I did a u-turn & headed for Ben More. As I headed down to the saddle in between both peaks the cloud started to lift & I could make out Ben More, within a hour as I was at the top of my second Munro of the day, both conquered before midday.
From here I decided to head down to the saddle in between the two peaks and follow that into the valley where I could pick up the trail along Inverlochlarig Burn. Finally I made it back to the car & another listen to Morrissey sing about Neal Cassady dropping down dead & 'Earth is the loneliest planet' on the journey back after a cracking day out & happy that I went for Ben More after all.

Pity about the trig point graffiti. Not the place for a political statement!
