Great 5 1/2 hour walk. Views on top of Bidean nam Bian were limited due to cloud cover however stunning views from Stob Coire Sgreamhach (the 2nd munro) as well as on the ascent to Stob Coire nan Lochan towards Fort William and beyond. Cloud was moving fast and at the top of Stob Coire nan Lochan (where we had lunch) and the route to Bidean nam Bian was not visible which is where CT's map reading & compass skills came into play. Descent was pacy led by CT who was clearly keen for the post walk libation in the Laid Inn near Callander which served tasty beer (Laid Back being one of the ales on offer). Followed by a well deserved Fish Supper in Mohr Fish in Callander!

Mohr Fish in Callander, is that the fancy chip shop? If it is, it's brilliant in there :D .

Yep, it is the fancy chippy and highly recommended (only after some serious walking though!)
