Well after another Monday sitting in my office looking out at the lovely sunshine I though enough was enough! I had to get out on to the hills at all costs, so after a few phone calls and a quick check of the MWIS website I was ready to leave work and head for the hills ( the joys of always having a packed lightweight pack in your car :D )
tonight hill of choice was the lovely Ben Donich as I knew that on a good night I could see for miles as well as watch the sunset/moon rise

So off we set from the car park with the lovely view of what lay ahead

then off we went up the nice and easy path with a few little step parts and a nice little scramble, the walk to be honest wasnt much to talk about but the views that opened up around us where totally amazing! So rather than bore use with some long winded chat about the walk I am just going to post the pictures that where taken and hopefully they will show use all how good a hill this is to climb, especially at sunset.
