The Crainlarich Munros Day 3 & 4 Xmid2 and Trailstar shelters

We caught a touch of frost overnight and had heavy condensation,but what a start to the day it was ! Inversions galore 

These are the mornings we soak up the view and quietness of a waking day

       Bit of drying time in the warm breeze before L.N.T and moving on 

Looking North 

Once on the summit of Cruach Ardrain we took the small and very steep path NE of it to collect a new Top for me,Stob Garbh.We continued East then lost most of our height,down to 430m to then start the slow pull up to the coll

After many slugs of cold mountain water we left the sacks and went up Stob Bennein,fine views in all directions 

The ridge Southwards 

Back to the packs for more fluids and an energy boost,it was with slower limbs we slowly but steadily made our way up to Ben Mores lofty view point,my visit before had the ground and the sky all white

Ben More done all that was left was to descend then pitch up and brew followed by food and drink 

              View down to Loch Tay as I devoured my tea 

Day 4 

Our last day started as forcast,with rain and a steady 20 gusting 34 mph SW wind..Xmid 2 handled it well and after a quick brew we put our waterproofs on for the first time and a decent back to the car 

Another excellently planned and guided trip,I really should start up a business  😉🙄 Safe Travels Peter
