We followed the standard route up these two hills in pleasant June sunshine returning by the path W of Vorlich. Glen Vorlich is an enclosed and rather dull glen, though the path in 1994 was nothing like as wide or as eroded as it is now : but Stuc a'Chroin is a splendid hill
Here are the photos:- hopefully in the right order
The Tarmachan hills come into view across Loch Earn and Glen Tarken
The direct ascent of Stuc a'Chroin is quite steep but Prince found his way up with difficulty
