(This is my first blog so it might be a bit rubbish,so hopefully they will get better over time)
We had been planning this trip for a few weeks,I was driving up to crianlarich on the Thursday night after work and staying in the syha at crianlarich.Rich was getting the overnight sleeper from London and meeting me on Friday morning.We were up for 3 days and had planned one day walk and then a 2 dayer with overnight camp.This day walk was originaly a 2 day walk,but I stupidly asked rich if we could do it in a day and he said lets go for it.We parked the car just outside Tyndrum and headed up the Glen,its was a beautiful morning,

We left the track and headed up the steep grassy slope up towards Beinn Dubhchraig we were in the shade now so it started to feel cold,but the steep climb soon warmed us up.

we reached our first munro of the day Beinn Dubhchraig,we had fantastic views, but it was very cold and a biting wind.we took some photos and moved on heading for Ben Oss,we reached its north top first but quickly moved on to its true summit.

We reached Ben Oss summit had a rest and a bite to eat taking in the good views we still had,but we new we had to move on quickly because we still had Ben Lui to do which was our highest munro of the day.
