Oddly enough I was just up the road from you today at Bridge of Orchy (still to do my walk report). Think I may have been luckier as the weather didn't close in there until about 2pm - haven't a clue though what the temperature was on the summits though. I'm hoping to cover Ben Challum next - did you go from near Kirkton Farm and could you tell me where you parked please ?

We got dropped off on the main road at Kirton Farm, there is a parking area on the main road 50 M from the start at Kirton Farm.

I have put our route on straight up and down it was very cold to be hanging about. It was - 16 in real money but add the wind on, my sandwiches froze in the top of my bag.
