Munros included on this walk: Meall Garbh (Ben Lawers), Meall Greigh
Date walked: 19/11/2011

Thankfully as we headed off the clouds started the break giving us some excellent views of Meall Garbh.
By now the wind had really picked up as we made our ascent, at least the rain had stayed away! Anyhow, we eventually reached the summit where we weren't disappointed with our view towards An Stuc which looked totally formidable from this side.
Due to the heavy cloud cover we retraced our steps and enjoyed a well earned pint in the Lawers hotel. Great to have bagged another two Munros and hopefully the weather will hold out and let us get to twenty before Christmas.

Best of luck rocket! I'm still a bit wary of tackling hills in the snow. I was thinking of getting some training or teaming up with someone with a bit more exprience in Winter walking.
