Hummed and aaghed which way. Fancied the longer route from Glen Lochay rather than the boggy route from Auchessan. Ended up parking on the A85 !!!
Ended up driving on telling myself it'll be worth the extra drive round and the extra 11 km or so on the feet - and it was!!
Parked up and keep walking all along the low track besides the river with Ben Challum always in front.
Eventually get a view of Beinn nan Imirean and the " path" which zig zags up part way.
Between the 2 stream crossings theres a wee arrow made of stones which I presume directs you across the 2nd stream a bit earlier.
I carried on to it and boulder hopped across it, but it could be difficult in spate.
On up the zig zag until it comes to an end and it's just a case of getting on the wide ridge line and heading up..
The views across to all the Crianlarich hills doesn't open up until the last step where a few rocks on a wee crag mark the summit - and the views are fantasric all round.
Snow line was about 830 metres on all hills today and what I did encounter wasnt very much.
Great walk going this way.
No one on " my hill" today and only bumped into one other lad near the car park on my return, who was out bagging some hills whilst wild camping
