Not particularly inspired by the normal 'there and back' trip from Inveruglas, I spotted what could be a nice horseshoe from Butterbridge and taking in Beinn Chorranach and Beinn Dubh and returning along the track through Glen Kinglas. There was a fair amount of snow around, powdery rather than icy, so crampons were not required. It was up to about a foot deep in places and with a weak crust so progress was slow and I had neglected to bring gaiters so ended up with quite a bit of snow in my boots! Considering my slow progress, I decided at Ghlas-bhealach that I wasn't that fussed about tagging Bein Chorranach and went straight for Ben Vane. The 'low bealach' really is very low and slopes quite steep. I also didn't really get an expansive view til I reached the summit, which was a pity for such a clear day. There are a lot of high deer fences in Glen Kinglas and not many places to cross. I'd suggest the way I went - joining the track at (235 130) or cutting across to Abyssinia bothy.

Start ot Inveruglas and follow Three Lochs Way to foot of Ben Vane. Steep ascent and scramble in places all the way to summit. Weather cloudy but dry with good visibility. Cloud well above tops.

Travelled up in the Van on the Saturday night and ate dinner at the Ardlui Hotel at the northern end of the loch. Set off around 10 am from the public car park at by the road side at the base of the Loch Sloy Hydro station. Relatively ok morning given the torrential rain the night before and until leaving the van. Just before the top the cloud came in with some rain which continued until most of the way down the mountain. My legs were exhausted after the descent so we returned to the van.

Parked at Succouth carpark and took the path up; hidden in patches due to the snow. Climbed the Narnairn boulders to reach the Spearhead and then the trig point, by 10:15. Headed over to Beinn Ime following the path and reached the summit - went left around the big pile of rock at he top - at 12:15. Had lunch with two other folk who had summitted too. Headed on down to the valley and then steep climb up to the summit of Ben Vane at 15:30, headed back down the path into the forest and had to take the Glen Loin - Arrochar loop for 8km to reach car. Left car at 07:20 and returned at 18.20. Weather was good - slight whiteout at top of Beinn Narnairn but lifted quickly, east wind blowing into face on way down Beinn Ime and Ben Vane. Cloudy skies but blue in places, and warm when the sun came out. Icy conditions n places - steep section up Beinn Narnairn and the killer, down Beinn Ime.

intended as a quick on the way hill! ended up coming down in darkness due to heavy snow making progress slow. good fun in a semi-masochistic sort of way.
