Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulaichean, 2010-04-11

Climbed by year and month


You have climbed 93/282 munros.

My previous visit to Cruach Ardrain, just a few days before, was a little frustrating as I was hail and gale'd off the western top, not making the summit.

So, I had a good idea what I was in for today and I wanted to bag the Munro behind it as well; Beinn Tulaichean. It was going to be a scorching day!

Meal Bhuidhe and Beinn Odhar across Strath Fillan.

Crianlarich, Ben Challum and friends from high on Grey Height.

A look into the massive Corie Ardrain.

This guy and his mate were from Dundee, and were on a tight timescale, so after taking my photo they headed off to Tulaichean.

Me on Cruach Ardrain, at last! with Ben More and Stob Binnein.

The west top from the summit with the two guys heading off.

Ben Lui looking fabulous. The air was just so clear!

Beinn Tulaichean is that-a-way.

Folk on Ben Tulaichean.

Looking back at Cruach Ardrain, and Stob Garbh.

Is there a better place for lunch?

The views the other side of Tulaichean were superb. Here the River Larig meanders along a glen, the shoulder of Beinn a' Chroin on the right.

It was with some reluctance that I had to leave the summit and head for home. It was a fair way for me and even with the Cruach Ardrain's north west bypass path I had quite a bit of ascent to do still.

A wee lochan on the ridge.

I suffered quite a bit with knee pain coming down so it was a race between me and the sun who would be off the hills first. I won, just.
