Munro number 9 and 10 for me and what a day it was....

Clear blue sky, not one cloud and approx. 26 degress....managed to avoid too much sun burn also.

Cracking day out, nice clear path. Skirted Beinn Ghlas making our way to Ben Lawers. Lunch at top with a nice breeze. A little hazy however the 'big ben nevis' was visible but does not show so good on the pic. Then made our way down and back up to Beinn Ghlas.

I will be back soon to complete the others and probably do these two again.

Some cracking pics there. Did these two in early April, as part of the five. It was a decent enough day but, unfortunately, Ghlas and Lawers were in clag then and it wasn't until we got dropped down towards An Stuc that it cleared a bit and the views opened up.

The photos and reports of walks in clear conditions just make me want to go back and experience it snow and clag-free. May try a wee camp up by Lochan na Lairige in July and do them again (with the Mealls, a' Choire Leith and Corranaich, thrown in)...no guarantee of clear conditions even then though! :roll:
