Stob a'Choin, my second attempt - 2018.

Fantastic views, great walk, and all that.  Snowy pics from my first attempt back in 2016.

The drive in - looking a bit snowier that I thought (2016)

Same walk up the track in 2018 past Invberlochlarig farm as the first time, if a bit warmer!  But this time I am heading up onto the top of the ridge on the right, and back down the way I tried this last time.

From halfway up the steep and possible dodgy route I chose.  Nice view of Beinn Tulaichean and Cruach Ardrain, with Stob Binnien on the right.  Glorious day.

And now the top is just over there - wasn't that easy!  Might be Ben Lomond on the right?

From the top, looking down to Inverlochlairg and Loch Voil.

Beinn a' Chroin and An Caisteal

And more hills way over there.

Clouds coming down.

That's better.  Looking back to the summit from the other side of Bealach Coire an Laoigh.

Ah, that's much better.  Summit I have just done to the left, Beinn a' Chroin behind, in the middle Beinn Tulaichean and Cruach Ardrain, and Stob Binnien to the right.  Ben More is in there somewhere!

Which was about as far as I got the first time.  Glad I didn't press on then!

Took a look South when I was here the first time - Loch Katrine I think, and Ben Lomond.

Before descending, last good view of Tulaichean.

How different a bit of the white stuff makes it look.

Looking back towards the summit, from the descent.

Coincidentally a similar picture in the snow.

Still a good bit to go down

And the walk back out - done it.

Eerie how many of the same views I took both times!

And now the walk back out.  Great day.
