Your 5 a day keeps you healthy

Met up with my friends Simon and Billy for what will be the first of several epics. Decided to go for the 5 munros of the Lawers Range, as the guys hadn't done them before and I wanted to tick off the first 3. Set off around 9am from the Horn Shop in Lawers, and roughly reached the summit of Meall Greigh in an hour and a half. Pea soup up there and indeed the rest of the walk....same old story, got to the car and the clouds broke out. Unfortunately do to a camera malfunction...ie I need a better one, mine refused to take pictures in the mist and rain!! Completed all 5 munros in about 7 hours, definitely recommend this on a nice sunny day, the views would be fantastic, fortunately I'd done Lawers and Ghlas before in gorgeous sunshine, so felt sorry for the guys on what they were missing out on.
Good scramble up An Stuc, all fairly easy going ascents and descents, although Lawers was tough going after the previous 3 and it is one big mountain!

Great mountain range if the weather is right, 7hours you guys must have been bombing it.

Hope the weather will be favourable when the 3 amigo complete more epics!.
