A bit late writing up so I can't remember too many details!

Looking at the forecast for this day, I just had to get out on the hills. My companion from 2 great sunny Wednesdays in Glencoe last summer (once we were allowed) was available again so off we went to tackle another two.

I felt slightly nervous given the description of schoolhouse ridge, but it was nothing to be scared off at all. It was a steep climb at first but the breeze kept us from getting over heated. Raf were training again that morning - saw then heard Tornado maybe doing it's thing. Good but hazy views all around. A straightforward and enjoyable walk. The return through the forested paths seemed to take a while. We came across some red deer here, one wasn't too shy and started at us for a while.

We were glad of a cool drink from the coop in Ballachulish at the end and had a chippy from Real food in Tyndrum on the way home - always good!
