After being dropped off for my first wildcamp jaunt this year a five night indulgence on the lawers range well that was the plan but the weather always changes plans.I started from the horn shop on loch tay and walked up past machium farm and up to the upper sheilings below lochan nan cat and purred to myself at the sight, setting up quick and enjoyed a lovely quite night well apart from the flute?The next morning the weather rolled in as if waiting for me don't you just hate it when that happens even the sheep took shelter and that was the pattern till wednesday morning the change was weird bad am good pm so set off for meall greigh good advantage starting from this point only took 1.5 hrs and thats taking it steady a long tug up to meall garbh the views are stunning continued to an stuc what a change biting wind,freezing cold,hail snow like broken windscreen glass,snow flakes and sun all within a couple of hours only seen four people all day but being honest i loved every minute its not just about bagging for me its about spending time and enduring the elements and absorbing the views carried on to ben lawers snacking on jelly babies all day surprised how quick i got to this point those babes are good carried on to beinn Ghlas and overall a great day back to the visitors centre and the long long long walk back to vehicle track and base camp oh and the flute? two nights hearing this felt really spooky at three in the morning away from it all any one else heard this I hope so. more pics to view

Excellent Andy. Looks like a good wild camp was had. Some smashing photos. Good attitude challenging the conditions. I like that. Jelly baboes are my fav too
