Saturday morning the forcast is for rain to die away towards lunchtime.
Decide to head for killin and Ben lawers. Arrived in the car park at 100am, there were quite a few people about.
Got booted and set off at 10.15am.
Managed to get a bit of space between myself and other walkers. Walk was very easy, a lot easier than i expected. Reached the top of Beinn Ghlas, did not stop for pictures as the mist was still swirling.
Headed on to Lawers hoping that the forcast was going to be right. It was the sun was beginning to break through,
As i reached the summit the views were 360 degrees. Fantastic. Had some lunch then started down. the walk out was very peaceful and with the warm sunshine i got some lovely photos.
Arrived back at the carpark at 2.45pm. another good day on the hills.
