we did this route last year. luckily the day started nice and sunny, but right before we climbed ben lawers fog covered everything.
we took standard route thru beinn ghlas, the way back- north west from beinn ghlas, just as marked in black on the main map.
the walk was nice, I was quite impatient to climb beinn ghlas and it seemed ages before i got there. from beinn ghlas, ben lawers seemed to be miles away but as we approached it became smaller and closer.
worth going :)
