Munro with cancer #33

19th September 2015, Ben Lawers (M010), 3893ft, 1214m

This was the third time I have been to the summit of this mountain. It is one of my favourite mountains. From a distance it appears as a fairly nondescript lump, from close by it is a massive and intricate array of corries, ridges, cliffs and steep grassy slopes. Even at the summit there is earth enough to support dense patches of grass. It forms the highest point on a squiggly ridge of seven Munros on the north side of Loch Tay. The best view of the mountain is from Carn Gorm to the north.

Munro with cancer #30

19th September 2015, Meall Greigh (M136), 3284ft, 1001m

This little mountain is the highest point at the eastern end of the Ben Lawers squiggle. It affords spectacular views of the ridge to the west as well as Glen Lyon and Loch Tay. I approached it from the north having parked at Invervar in Glen Lyon. This was the first of the day’s five Munros!
