Ben Cruachan Climbing Notes

Robert Holland from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

We stayed at the Brander Lodge Hotel and there is a route to summit Ben Cruachan directly opposite the front doors its steep but worth it as an alternative to the normal trail. See the guys in the Brander they are most helpful and probably would let you park there free (not to mention there's a bar to cure those tired legs on return:P)
