At the start when we were driving through Dunkeld when a cloud started to come in. We got to the mountain and parked and saw that the cloud was over the loch.

We walked up and there was still cloud on top of the mountain but luckily it went away before we got up there.

We turned around and got a good view on Beinn Ghlas.

The view from each side when your up there is amazing on all sides even when your not at the top.

We were walking up on top of a little hump and had a break because we were hungry and thirsty.

We were looking at a pointy bit and our dad said you could stand on it and I thought it would be fun but we got there and it wasn't fun.

After the break we had to go up these really steep stairs and they were so exhausting.

We got to the top and it was really warm, we got a view it was just the clouds in front of us.

On the walk to the pointy bit we saw a big puddle with ice at the side of it.

We got on top of the pointy bit and got a view of Ben Nevis and Carn Mor Dearg.

We got on the ridge and it wasn't as scary as it sounds it was very simple.

Then after we got off the ridge we went to the car park and went home.
