Nil Point to MWIS - 90% chance of cloud free Munros (West Highlands) and a hint of inversion
Old favourite Ben Lomond would be fine for this - nae chance - clag from bottom to top
As usual a bit icy at bottom of final rise - put on microspikes - this seemed to cause amusement to other hillwalkers :?
Saved slithering about, or moving on all fours as many were doing
Bit of a disappointing day but provided some (much needed) exercise
34th time on Ben Lomond
Pint at The Oak Tree - Old Speckled Hen :D
