Went to do all 5 in may 2011 but weather was rancid so soggy and miserable bailed after 3 down past robbers falls.

What a contrast after 7 years turned out a scorcher, hit meal nan eun first nice walk up glen quite a rough ascent 2.5 hours to flat summit all hills around towered above good views,headed off to second of the day much nicer hill enjoyed the climb weather much better now after being quite overcast to start. 11am summit wandered around Corrie rim before descending to bealach before descending down past robbers falls. Very warm enjoyed the wander back glen etive looking braw in the sunshine,will be back to do starav again. Back at car for 1.30 after sinking in a bog up to my knees when so nearly back. Drive home took 3 hours accident at tyndrum caused a delay,not like the 2 hour drive there that was a pleasure at 5am with little traffic. Good day had on my lonesome and home in plenty time to clean bog covered boots and enjoy fa cup final.
