Hike and Fly to the 2 munros above Loch Tay with base camp in Killin. I had a very good day and conditions looked promising, so I headed to the area to hike these two munros and try to fly from the summit of one of them. I finally took off from Beinn Ghlas as it has perfect grassy slopes on the top, and there was a perfect 13 km/h laminar breeze, something not very common in Scotland... :shock:

And I thought that hike-and-bike was quite "trailblazing"! :D

It looks absolutely wonderful!
