Ascent Trip Report

I visited my brother in Edinburgh to meet my new nephew and took him (brother not nephew..) for a short walk in Arrochar, climbing Stob Coire Creagach via a direct climb of the southern slopes from the obvious car park after the big bend in the road. After traversing over to Binnein an Fhidhleir we descended briefly east again to circumvent the steepest ground then due north back to the road, a mile or so west of our starting point.
