Climbing an invisible Munro

Route: Ben Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin

Munros: Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn), Stuc a'Chroin

Date walked: 21/04/2013

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 17.5km

Ascent: 1635m

Having postponed this walk a fortnight ago due to the quantity of snow still around, Pedro27 and I set off to complete the 2 Munros.

The weather wasn't great and our visibility was pretty poor when we parked the car at Loch Earn and started walking at 0900. Thankfully the pea soup lifted a bit around lunch time!

A fair amount of stopping for snapshots and a nice extended lunch break sheltering behind a rock added considerably to our time.

As you'll see from the Garmin adventure, we didn't take the 'traditional' route but decided to try an alternative.
