Took a cheeky wee day off today to take advantage of the good weather and headed over to Luss,

As you'll see from the photos, it looked like it was going to be a horrible claggy day with nothing to see, how wrong was I, once you climbed up past 200M you were above the cloud and wow it was quite possibly one of the most spectacular views I've ever had of the area.

and for the last stretch I think I should have positioned a bike, I despise road walking

I'll let you judge for yourselves

What a great days weather you had, some cracking photos above the clag! The Grahams around Luss are the first hills I'm planning when I next head north

It's a hill I constantly overlook despite it being about 20 minutes away. I'll need to rectify that soon.
