Having visited the other Binnein one crazy day a few years back, we were just going for the furthest one today. Walked out along Loch Laggan, turning in a few times before we finally found a do-able line up to the top and out to the summit. Took a wider line back, coming around the edge of the more heavily forested section - came back out fairly close to the first turning we'd tried :roll: :lol:

Nearing the Loch; Creag Meagaidh Tops (a route we'd thought about doing today) looking clear over there too
Lovely path along the Loch
No clear path up; we'd already turned back from bog and bush-whacking
Found a line we were happy to tackle :)
Looking back
Got quite steep!
The other Binnein over to our right as we reached the top
Easier going now to get along to the summit
Summit view to the east
Heading back, we walked along the top of the tree line to find an easier route through (lots of deer out here today but they're just a blur in my pics, ha!)
Back on the good track; just for the long walk out now, before the rain starts (made it!)
