So we were off home now and as weather was so good thought we'd do a couple of short walks on the way. First was Ardsheal Hill on the Oban road where we parked at the community centre. There is a grassy track behind the centre that leads to the mast, with a path leading to the summit just before the mast. Great views for very little effort. 1hr up and down. Back in the car now and on way to Glen Coe where we would stop for Meall Mor. Again a grassy track leads to the mast and from there an easy climb to the summit. 1hr for this one as well.

I am actually now seriously considering Meall Mor and the one across the road for tomorrow. With my daughter away and my wife out for most of the day, I simply have to get out, but the forecast seems to have firmly put paid to anything higher. Don't expect I'll get the views of Rannoch Moor that you got JC, but hey, it's better than staying in or going Christmas shopping! :shock:

Yeh weather not looking to good this weekend, my weekend off as well, although Sunday looking ok down the Borders. I'm going to do the other one along with Leathad Mor but waiting on a good day for the plod over Rannoch Moor. As you say best getting out if you can, beats Christmas shopping :wink:
