My first trip out with my Dad in a while, and his first trip out since the big 5 0. So I was hoping it was gong to be a good one...

Left the house a little later than usual. Set off around half 9..

The weather forecast didn't look too great when I checked the night before. It was great though, lots of sunshine, clear skies. A bit windy at the the summit of Stuc a 'Chroin but not too bad....

I cant believe how fast the snow is disappearing :shock: this made the climb quite difficult at some places as we were sinking in up past out ankles....

Il let the Photos do the talking.....

Another brilliant day on the hills, will be sad to see the snow go.

Faither's quote of the day "Whoever said that age was just a number obviously didn't climb any hills" haha


Woke up this morning looking like Rudolph haha my dad phoned to say he was the same. Should have taken sun cream :oops:


Heres another video of the Summit. Best viewed in HQ..
