Was supposed to be getting a delivery in the afternoon but with the weather so nice I had to fit in a quick hill walk somewhere and Ben Gulabin seemed ideal. Ummed and ahhhed and decided to take Moss as well since it only took us 2 hours the previous time. Had a chat with a man called Martin on the way up who used to ski there. We only did the main summit before heading down and on the last stretch went around the corner and a plane was flying towards us so low and close! I've been told it was a Hercules probably on a training flight.
