Hi all

Was picked up at 730 yesterday morning by Jim we wanted to bag Ben Chabhair we failed 3 weeks before was forcasted a nice day so we took the chance while it was here

we met up with 2 of jims walking friends so was a party of 4 out in total

Most of the snow was gone and we could actually see our hill as 3 weeks ago was in mist

wee took up the ridge to the left to enjoy the views but were pushed for time when we got to the final bit i decided i was getting this in the bag as it was carry on or turn back time once we got t the peak the good shots started to emerge plus got a nice sunset too

then it was get away down before the sun went down

Comments welcome

Peter
