we normally do a munro or two on new years day so i've said to her we've got to go back and do stuc a chroin.
has anyone done the monster walk from callander to these bad boys? the glen cronnish trek has been refered to as a Monster also (which i've done) how does it compare?

it was no bother a few weeks later but i couldnt see stuc a chroin in the heavy mist.
i would recommend doing stuc from loch lubnaig then from glen ample bagging a corbett on the way beinn each i found this quite easy on a summers day and never met anyone up or down only at the top

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one, you were even closer than me, I think we were less than 500m away when we turned round but could see b*gger all. I think we will now leave this one for the summer and a good day (if we get any next year ) and tack on Stuc as well.

only bagged the Ghram Ben our. our intention was to use ben our. then slide down her slopes and then cross the burn i forget the name now and accend the easy slopes of the western side of stuc a chroin. we missed he start of the route not payin attention so we just went off route and satrted to climb the eastern faceof ben our once we realized our mistake views were pretty good and then about 600m the clouds took us away and the snow came in and we we're in a beautifull white out. lots of batteries in the GPS so we decided not to coninue to stuc and to decend our original accent route.
we had a laugh and the wind was very strong stinging us with snow but we built a snowman on he sumit and watched as the dog attacked it, then slid down some of the steeper hard packed snow bits on our buts and or bellies. using the GPS we walked the ridge and easily found the road back down and back to the car park at loch earn.
it was very nice and it reminded me of my childhood in Canada, the wife was annyed wih the wind sinin but i didn't mind it it was nice bein in those conditions if i were on my own and had some ski goggles i would have contunied.
