Myself, Mike Jo & their dog plus Walter decided to ascend Ben Vorlich on a beautiful autumn day in September. The views on the way up were stunning although the wind had picked up and it was fairly chilly at the top.. We then decided to ascend Stuc a'Chroin which involved a brief descent before some scrambling over rocks to reach the top of our second munro.

We then descended and found a spot for lunch. The descent after that was challenging as the ground was wet and boggy with all of us falling at some point!

Arrived back to the care after around 6 hours and in need of a change in clothes!
