Loch Awe from the inital climb up from the A85 at Cruachan Power Station. The Power Station is a hydro electric station built under the mountain. A seperate visit allowing us to take a bus tour inside the mountain.

The Cruachan Reservoir Dam and in the upper left of the picture Ben Cruachan comes into view, free of cloud for most of the day. My walk following the ridge from left to right.

Looking down to the Reservour, my route up ran parallel to the stream. The route down is also visible across the valley following the deep cut stream down the hill.

Having left Bealach an Lochain (the dip in the middle) I now ascended Ben Cruachan. More walkers giving this a sense of scale.

From the summit of Ben Cruachan looking east to Stob Dearg.

With weather this good I couldn't resist a panoramic shot.(Click on the photo for a larger image).

From the summit of Ben Cruachan my walk follows the ridge to Drochaid Ghlas the next peak on the ridge. The continues on following the ridge in the distance from left to right.
