Started of at the car park filled with diggers and porta-toilets, not exactly appealing. But that soon dissapeared from sight and it was upwards and onwards.
Reached the top of Beinn Ghlas an hour and a half after I set off, and had the top to myself for lunch
The cloud and snow shower finally passed and I got my first view of Ben Lawers.
Another hour and a half and I was to the top of Ben Lawers. Simply stunning veiws once the clouds cleared and the blues started to show
Awesome day out and practically the whole place to myself. Was going to attempt An Stuc but would be struggling for time and it was pretty tough going in the snow, ice and strong wind, so headed back to the car.
Stopped off along the way for some shots of Loch Tay at sunset.
