9th and 10th munros dusted yesterday. Ben Vorlich and Stuc A'Chroin.
Absolutely cracking day in terms of weather and other than a 60-90 minute period when I was walking on the bealach towards Stuc A'Chroin there wasn't a cloud in the sky, forgot to lift sun cream before I left in the morning so I took an absolute scudding from the sun and am well and truly feeling it today. Ben Vorlich absolutely heaving which was to be expected to be fair but thankfully not as many people went over to Stuc A'Chroin. Stuck behind a big group of what could have easily been 40 for a part of the Ben Vorlich ascent but passed them fairly easily. Overheard comparisons of local Lidl shops and decided that was enough and bombed forward quite a bit so I could avoid that for the rest of the walk.
Glad to finally see some improvements fitness wise on this walk after struggling a lot on my first couple post-lockdown walks. No football until at least October for us so planning on continuing battering the munros out until then or the weather changes for the worst.
The nick of where I parked on the banks of Loch Earn was horrendous, cars abandoned everywhere with bins filled to the brim with more rubbish lying around those bins. Tents propped up on every small space where you could fit one as well, if you're thinking about heading up to that area I would avoid it or try and time it well. 9am when I arrived was bad, 3pm when I was back down was somehow worse. Here's hoping that the numbers of people in these areas die down soon before there are any lasting effects on both the law and terrain front.
