After we met at Creise two weeks ago and exchanged our contacts, we arranged to do another Munros together with Ricky and his dog Solo. I chose Glen Spean area, got all essential info about the route, start point, parking etc. and prepared for the way. It was a week day, so I wanted finish early and get back home in the good time afternoon - it means to get there very early and start the walk in darkness as the daylight is shorter in November. :roll: I met Ricky and his dog Solo at Tesco car park before 3:30 am and then we continued together by my car. Heading the north via Stirling, Perth and Dalwhinie we left the A86 shortly after Loch Laggan reservoir. Used the narrow road we parked near An Dubh Lochan in darkness. Started the walk carefully around the little Loch with a torch in hand, we overcomed some wire fence and first short ascent...Then the daylight came finally and we were able to make some photos. 8) :D :wink:

Looking back again. We decided this way via the slope angle to avoid some very boggy grounds in the bottom and some wind on the top
:roll: :wink: :)

Looks like Solo made this shot...but there was a big flat stone for the self-timer by camera
