planed to park at the Ben Lawers car park bur icy road prevented this so parked at the northern end of the lower fores. walked up the road to the carpark then took path through Ben Lawers nature reserve and ascended the southern ridge of Beinn Ghlas. full on winter day put crampons on and used ice axes from about 750m. close to zero vis above 850m, very challenging day for nav. Used gps on the way down to locate correct descent.

ANC solo, dad dropped me off after I left my car in a layby. Clear day after 12pm, cloudy start. 6 hours for the whole traverse. Saw grouse, 5 or 6 tarmagin a herd of red deer. Ran out of water on An Stuc and suffered for the rest of the walk! Hitched with an old couple back to my car. Also did An Stuch now classed as a munro.
