Walked this with LR Ad Hoc'ers, on a perfect winters day. Blue sky, very little wind, a bit of snow on the tops. As it ended up as 'my' walk since Moira's was 'off' due to her back problem I pursuaded them to do Ben Oss first as I had already done Ben Dhubhcraig. A slightly extended circuit of Oss ensuide as we didn't pay enough attention to the route. I got a bit of cramp from summit onwards. Not enough energy food or water being the cause. Had eased by the time I got down. Doreen hadn't felt too great so turned back before the snow line. The rest of us: Diane, Mike, Chris & John all made it. I didn't do Dhubhcraig again and so enjoyed a slower pace on the descent. Even got back home (6pm) in time to go to RSNO concert in the Usher Hall (7.30).
