After deciding not to do Stuc a Chroin when on Ben Vorlich due to weather and a navigational error in bad weather on Ben Each. This red ballon had bugged me every time I looked at my Munro map, a free afternoon was my opportunity to do it. Despite constant rain nothing was stopping me get to the top this time. Left from Ardvorlich and followed towards Ben Vorlich, turned off at usual return route until I could cut across to scramble up Stuc a Chroin. Loved the scramble despite the rain and although wet, very happy to reach the summit cairn at the 3rd time of asking.
