12-7.30pm John and I Glen Etive campervan trip.
late start after excellent evening at top glen - wine/beer/whisky last night.
cross unwelcoming looking bridge/gate and then bog trap stile to cottage and woodland/bridge. Head for col by lone tree then easy ascent onto ridge proper. Superb views all around Bidean, Buchailles, Starav, Trilleachan etc.
circular route to assess Chasgaig route for future trip -single plank bridge bit dodgy.
headed to bottom glen, prepared Lamb curry and overnight, moonlight cigars at midnight finishing off whisky - tamnavulin.
