MEDIUM/HARD DEPENDING ON EXPERIENCE

We parked in a carpark  on the A82  which is the start of the walk, we got here pretty early with only one other car, in fact we only passed a couple of people and thats when we was coming down.

Its a Well-constructed rocky path to bealach, with some boggy sections, it is easy to follow, we had poor visibility on the day we walked this route so only walked to Stob Dubh, which was the tallest munro, we plan to come back and summit the other.

We stopped for a snack break here debating on which summit to climb the one to the left was closer but very steep, we decided to take the path to the right up to Stob Dubh, it was a good path with some steepness and rocky sections until we reached the ridge line when it leveled out, the ridge line was easy to follow and luckily had no wind as i can imagine it being quite open on this section.

The summit was a final sharper ascent up to the summit cone of Stob Dubh where we had zero views, we could just about see the path for the return walk which we did quite swiftly as the weather was getting worse.

Even though we had rain and low clouds we still had a nice walk and the little one was proud of herself for reaching her first Munro.
