Parked the car at Invercharnan quarry the day before, slept in the car, didn't want to bother setting up the tent as it was raining like crazy.
Started the walk in he dark, getting having a bit sunlight just after the bridge was crossed and headed into the pine forest. The forest is very difficult to cut through but there is a tiny path just off the river you can follow. When the trees have gone turn uphill.
1st Munro was reached just before 9am and the 2nd half an hour later. From the saddle we descended to I would not recommend to follow our route because the descend near Creag Dhubh is very steep. Maybe a bit North would make it easier.
Reached the 3rd Munro at 4ish.
If you want to go back to the quarry you will need to enter to the forest at the right place and have a good map with all the roads on it in the forest because there is no way to cut yourself through. We reached the car at 6ish, obviously in dark. Weather was terrible, deep snow, wind, cold and rain in Glen Etive.
