A day for my 4th and 5th Munro...weather amazing as it turned out!!!..
Started and thought OMG ...was a bit tired at the start but got going and soon we were at the top of Beinn Ghlas and the views were immense ..Ben nevis, Cairngorms all in view :clap:
Looked uptowards Ben Lawers and thought YEAH i can do that as it didnt look that long ...eeehhhhh i was wrong.It was a sore one but i managed it. Got to the top and settled down for some homemade soup..etc... BRAW.
Return to Bealeach between the 2 hills and dropped down a sneaky we path and it was busy just like Princess street :lol:
Got back to the car and stopped at Killin Hotel for a nice spot of lunch as a small reward from Pigeon ...JOB DONE xx
