Group of us did Cruinn a Beinn from Inversnaid (watch out for the massive hole in the road just above the hotel). No parking after the bunkhouse at the moment.
Andy Dempster's book on the Grahams gives 3 to 4 hours for this walk but he must be jet-propelled! :crazy:
More to the point we enjoyed a great day out with 360 degree panoramas and a nice sunset to boot. The steep 1000ft lift from Cailness up to the high ground was a bit of a shock to the system and the top section is steeper than it looks.
We all sat around gawping at the stunning view not believing our good fortune. Shirt sleeves in November for the most part! The amount of water coming down the falls at Inversnaid was something to see too!

I took longer than expected also . Bit boggy at mid height into the bargain :D

I came back via Creag a`Bhocain and along the WHW in the dark.
