I wasn't holding out much hope for decent weather as I headed off, however, as I arrived at the Loch Achray car-park things semed a bit more promising wwith only the threat of a shower....I hoped.

Overnight and morning rain made the hillside pretty heavy in places.

Also comes in liver and white!

Well worth the effort with great views over Loch Achray and Venachar.

Made it! and got the timer to work on the camera as well.
