I arrived at the side of the road just before Ben More farm at the small sign,and decided to have a cuppa and a choccy bar only one car here so did not expect to see many people today.

Quite a few people passed me on the way up,i thought not many people today how wrong was i and at one point I thought someone was doing free donkey rides to the top.
I decided to have my lunch at this point 3 hrs to get up was not bad even for me.I was waiting for the rain to start but it never amazed.A guy turned up just after me called Joe and I remained with him for the rest of the day, nice fella and made a nice change to have a chat on the way round with some one.

Joe on his way down to the Bealach

Eventually came to the large stone at the Bealach Eadar Da - Bheinn, good shelter Rock this is from wind and that horrible side rain one gets now and then

I was trying to look up to Stob Binnien but the rain and clag spoilt that,when i really got a good look it looked quite steep,a very good path all the way to the top so that was fine by me,around about this point a lot more people had arrived up here they where coming from all directions.

joe had already got to the top before me He's a fitter walker than me by far,had a sit down for a while and then decided to head back down to the large boulder and then on down to the farm track and back to the car
