An ascent of Scottish Munro Cruach Ardrain near the village of Crianlarich has been featured as walk of the week in the Scotsman newspaper.
The publication described the route up the 3,432 ft mountain as something that can be achieved in five or six hours, although it also noted that those donning their walking boots
can also combine the climb with that of neighbouring Munro Beinn Tulaichean.
Those heading up the mountain may wish to take a trekking pole
, as the writer observed that the climb via the subsidiary top of Stob Garbh can be tricky, particularly in inclement weather.
Another fact stated was that those looking to navigate the route easily can make use of Ordnance Survey maps
, with maps 50 and 51 covering the area.
There are several Munros that can be climbed from Crianlarich in the vicinity, with neighbouring peaks including Beinn a' Chroin, Beinn a' Chleibh and An Caisteal.
Crianlarich's highest peaks are Ben More (3,852 ft) and its neighbour Stob Binnein (3,822 ft).
