What to do today?? Still recovering from a tummy bug and needed to be back by midday - easy - Ben Vrackie!! A quick drive to Moulin an we were walking for 09.20.

Weather forecast was not too good and waterproofs went on at car.

However the rain was only light until we reached the summit when it started coming down in sheets!!

As Sods Law would have it about 10 minutes after leaving the summit the sun came out - ahhhhh well - you win some and you lose some. It did make for a nice wee stroll back to the car.
