Conditions: dry good visibility no cloud breezy chilly on top due to wind
Notes: 10 min walk in start. Once off track not really a path although faint path at times. First ascent to Sron na Garbh-bheinne summit looked challenging from below but very straight forward, not too steep, minimal hands on required, grassy. Highlight of the walk. From here, easy walk to first munro (Stob Coire Sgriodain). The walk then followed the ridge round before starting second main ascent. Several red deer seen. Very easy going although few paths. Second munro (Chno Dearg) really is a big grassy lump but had a very large cairn. Ascent was very gradual with a couple of paths. Very Long, very boggy, open descent. Can see the car/Fersit pretty much the whole way. Would have been harder in poor visibility.
Overall a very easy chilled day.
