Definitely the right time! We were on Oss & Dubhcraig yesterday too; however we started later and did Ben Lui & Beinn a' Chleibh first. Assuming the photos below were taken at sunrise and not sunset, you'd have been well ahead of us.

Isn't the forest lower down just beautiful? :)

Thank you James :) I was waiting to do this duo after more dry days to avoid the usual boggs there and it was worth it finally :D I kept dry all the way, enjoying the sunny clear views :D
Originally going to do the remaining three at Glen Etive, where the bottom is boggy as well, but the road closure until 07:00 am forced me to use this plan B near Tyndrum :roll: :)
Good to use dry days like this for some usually infamous muddy areas :D

Great conditions for all four there ! :D The forest is really beautiful, a lot of photos made there - especially in the morning's lights with sunrise. The combination of pine trees, water, sky and sunshine was just perfect ! :D I arrived around 05:00 am and started the walk around 5:15 am...I met first people on my way back - almost on the bottom near the forest :wink:
