Scoob route today :crazy: deciding to go for more local Munros as we've been missing the big hills recently (still holding out for good weather for our last 2 this round). Went for a loop from the main road to take in all 5 up here... but bailed after the Top between Lawers and An Stuc :( The wind was pushing us over and - as usual - it was taking longer than we'd thought :shock: :lol:

setting off, heading straight up Ghlas first
steep pull coming up this way; snow didn't always hold our weight
Ghlas summit
Lawers summit was a bit more Arctic! Glad of the shelter for quick food stop
view back up to An Stuc (much relief to be down here - that was a steep line in soft snow!)
almost back - finished with an off-track line down to the layby
