Thanks to Kristan for his pics which I have added in.

Preparation for the big walk

Hillwalking fluid!

Robin puts Kristan's light out.

First view of the brutal ascent.

And no one fell in!

Not even Stuart.

Mark getting changed

How much further!

Then lunch!  The Gallagher's too brutalised to give us a song.

The top of Ben Starav.  Anyone having fun yet?

Enjoy the lovely view!

Look, Loch Etive on the left, and the Alt nam Meirleach valley on the right- honest.

Stob Coir an Albannaich

And then it cleared up.

The team

Looking North up Glen Etive, and East to Stob Coir an Albannaich.  Makes it all worthwhile.

The day improves further.  View up Glen Etive to Buachaille Etive Mor

But Ben Starav remained hidden....

until we got back down.
