High above Loch Awe, Ben Cruachan looks down into the dark coire holding the Cruachan Reservoir below. Behind this massiff are the softer mountains of Beinn a'Chochuill and Beinn Eunaich.

We're hiking along fine crests and rugged terrain high on the Dalmally Horseshoe and Glen Strae Munros. We'll reach superb vantage points from where vast views can be savoured, to Jura, Mull and Glencoe.
