A good weather day with great views all round.
I followed the good track to the dam and came to a dead end then I had to climb up steeply to get on the right landrover track. :shock:
Meall Buidhe first and then over to SaCC where Stuc an Lochain would have been easily reached, but not today!
I had planned to walk off Sron a’ Choire Chnapanaich straight down to my car but I met another walker who said he tried to come up that way and there was stalking going on. :roll: Oh well it’s back the way I came up then. :lol: .
On the way down a helecopter flew past over from Glen Lochay along Loch Lyon and landed on top of Beinn Mhanach.
About 10 mins later it took off and headed south, a rescue perhaps?
