Ben Ledi and Benvane

A couple of Corbetts, before I decided Corbetts were the new Munros.  Long walk between the two!

What else to do on a Sunday in August, but head up Ben Ledi and Benvane?  Stairway to heaven (?) on the way up from the South end of Loch Lubnaig - parking was horrendous!

Starting to get a bit of a view - looking East to Dumyat.

And the view back down to Loch Lubnaig, and Glen Ample (I had never heard of it either) and to the right Stuc a Chroin with Ben Vorlich behind.

Onto the ridge, with a view of loads, from Dumyat in the East (left) to presumably Meikle Bin in the West?

Plenty of people up here.

Cross, because this wasn't really the top!

The top, looking west to the Arrochar Alps, Ben Venue, and Loch Katrine.

And looking South East.

Loch Lubnaig, and my eventual route home.

Glen Finglas Reservoir, Ben Venue, etc.  The Trossachs I guess?

Looking back to the summit of Ben Ledi.

At last, the summit of Benvane.  If this is typical of Corbetts I think I might give up - a boring old slog and not much to see except Ben Ledi!

The view west and north - hills!  Not even going to try naming them.

Loch Lubnaig again, with Strathyre to the left and Stuc a' Chroin/Ben Vorlich in front.

Glen Finglas Reservoir again.  Boring.

Ben Ledi - boring

Benvane from Stuc Dhubh.  Boring.
