On Easter Saturday I left Fort William behind me and took the train to Crainlarich. I dropped my backpack in the hotel and walked in the direction of Beinn a’Chroin. The weather was far from perfect. It was raining beastly and the sight was very limited. With a lot of effort I managed to pass the river Falloch. It was quite easy to reach the East top but only managed to find the real summit with a compass in my hand. On the way back to Glen Falloch I first needed to find the crossing and overcome the mudflow. Once I was back on the landrover track getting back to Crianlarich was a piece of cake
