A sunny, but cold morning as I parked in Balquhidder for the pleasant walk along the minor road to Ballimore.

There was a beaten out path leading up the north ridge, which made the going a bit easier and after just over an hour, I arrived at the first top of the ridge. It was good to feel progress as I got above Creag Mhor and could see the Crianlarich hills.

As I made my way along the ridge, I got a view of Loch Lubnaig and the Ben Vorlich group to the east.

The going all of the way to the cairn was pleasant, even if the wind was cold.

There was also a lovely view of the Lawers range from the top.

I then dropped down to the west as I wanted to pick up the summit of Carn Mhor, before walking out. A couple of hail showers on the walk down the glen, but that didn't detract from what had been a lovely day.
