High Pressure on the way....

High Pressure on the way....

It might be as stormy as anything out there now, but the weather forecasts all agree some high pressure is on the way at last. Yippee! :D

Forcasters on TV last night said the high pressure would be here (all UK) by Friday and last well into next week - and we all know they are never wrong. Hope they get it right this time as my Munro journey starts Friday.

Hope to see some of you out and about on the Arrochar Alps! Does that mean there will be a queue to get up The Cobbler?

7 days too late for me, i was up in Torridon last week along with the wind, rain and mist, and work commitments will probably mean i miss the chance to walk anywhere in what could be the last few decent days of a terrible summer.
