I walked along the track and past the farm buildings to gain the track leading to wards Glen Inverlochlaraig. There was a path of sorts leading up the long slopes to Beinn Tulaichean, where the views to Loch Voil and Stob a'Chroin opened out. It was still clear when I arrived at the cairn.

I then dropped down to the col, before detouring out to Stob Glas. This was the hardest walking of the day, although I had an asthmatic sheep for company! Misty at the top, so I turned around for the long pull up the the Cruach Ardrain ridge. Once on the ridge, I could follow the footpath to the cairn, where the cloud was down. I have still to get a view from this hill.

The descent was straightforward - back along the ridge and from there I could follow a path of sorts back to Glen Inverlochlaraig and from there it was a pleasant walk back to the car.

Needless to say, 15 minutes after leaving Cruach Ardrain, the cloud lifted!
