There are numerous good descriptions of the route and what can be expected already uploaded so I won't repeat it all. I would say though that despite viewing Stuc a'Chroin from the summit of Ben Vorlich and saying aloud "no way will I be climbing up the hard way" and visually taking in the path off to the left, once I got to it I manned up and did it! :lol:
It was a sunny day so got some photos (though not on the scramble!!!).

Hi there Valveman, think I parked my car behind yours, I arrived at 0800hrs and there was only the one car parked there facing the bridge. We got an excellent hill day, I was doing the Corbett on the East side and was off by the time you had come down. Report to follow.
