Looks a nice spot by Ardmaddy Bay - bit of a surprise getting company I guess.
What route you planning on for Meall Garbh?

Nice trip :D .I really liked Beinn nan Lus, and this looks like an attractive way of approaching it. Definitely going to do a Taynuilt to Victoria Bridge traverse someday, taking in Beinn nan Lus and Ben Starav (then some others probably).

I intend heading into Meall Garbh from the South via Beinn Lurachan. Would have been too much for me last weekend to do both as I have an ongoing knee injury at the moment. Looks like you have just completed? Well done :)

Thanks Malgrey, Collaciotach and Malky_C

Thank you for recommending the steripen. I bought one and it has since lightened my load on expeditions to several summits, including Beinn nan Lus :)

Looks like a pleasant bike and hike! Looks like a great vantage point.
