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 :lol:

The direct ascent of Stuc a'Chroin is quite steep but Prince found his way up with difficulty
