We got to the car park around 9 and started making our way up after nearly having to rescue a wee lamd that had its foot stuck in the wooden slats that start the path , The way up was well laid and although clound was around it was never to thick , We got to the top of Ghlas and thought we were on Lawers (how stupid) we were well delighted to have done it so fast and when the clouds parted the veiws were stunning . Upon meeting another walker comming from the oopposit direction we inquired the best way down he then answered "well it depends , are you going on to do Lawers ? " we hid our stupidness and replied "oh yes of course " . We then followed the amazing ridge over and down and made our way to our second sumit of the day even if we thought we had allready done it ...When there it was well worth it , again alot of cloud but it only enhanced the scenery as it broke up and lifted to reveal awsome valleys and ridges all around . The decent was a pleasent walk with an easy trail leading down from inbetween Ghlas and Lawers along the mountain side and back to the main track and then to the car park . This was only my third and forth Munro and i enjoyed it very much and look forward to doing Meall Greigh and Meall Garbh on the same range in our next adventure ....

If you are going to do Meall Greigh and Meall Garbh then you can have a go at doing An Stuc before winter comes.
Last week we did this and it took 36 mins from the top Of Meall Garbh to the top of An Stuc......its a great climb :D
