On my own, on way to Ben More. Route per Walk Highlands website - terrific walk - dry very windy day, but views spoiled by haze.Crib Goch31/03/2014
Solo. From Knock. Up track on SW side of Loch Ba and up Glen Clachaig, initially on track and then path to col with spot height 332m. Left path and up ridge through boulders and scree to summit of A'Chioch. Route does not seem much used. I went SW to Ben More with a path and more or less well defined route with some scrambling. Down NW on standard Ben More route to road, taking a cut off low down to take me near Knock. Road blocked by damaged bridges which is one reason for my route choice.pwbellarby13/07/2012

So HOT. Lesley put her head in a shop freezer when we got down! Very long walk past Loch Ba - sea eagle seen through telescope of two birdwatchers -although it might have been my eyelash or a flying ant from this distance that I was looking at.
