Hi

Was out yesterday with Jim again up Ben Mhanach one we have been wanting for a while
Jim picked me up at 0930 then we picked up 2 others it was wet when we left the house so we thought
wet all day

we headed up the a82 when the weather started too clear

At the summit looking down Loch Lyon Jim spotted his favourite mountain An Stuc

Weather was great all day we ended up back to the car for 1800 after a good walk

comments welcome on my images

Peter

Many thanks we actually saw a whole sheep in bits decending from the hill it had been eaten by a eagle

The more I read about this hill, the more I'm convinced I'll cycle in.

Cracking photos - the third one is the pick of the bunch for me. I'll go in over those two Corbetts when I get round to it! 8)

Many thanks for the comments

Yes the water was pretty low and a cycle in would have saved a lot of time
