So eleven weeks had passed without any walking done,time to change that,but where.Looking at something easy to break me back in.but long enough to know I had been out,so after a few PMs passed by fellow WH members me,alan s,polly,tomsie,leithy suburbs & tomyboy all met past Glenmore Lodge heading for Bnyack More.

Nice easy start for this one along the landrover track,with everybody getting aquainted

After 10/15min of easy walking you come to Locan Uaine,and its every bit as stunning as I has imagined

A little over 3 hrs and an easy stroll I had my 1st summit pic of 2012 Bnyack More

The wind had picked up somewhat by this time,but nowhere near the 80mph gusts predicted on MWIS,but still cold enough for us all to drop down before have a food break.

All that was left now was retracing our outward journey back to Glenmore Lodge,this was done at an easy pace,giving plenty time to drink in the views,enjoy the weather & take some more pics.
