Here we go! Parked at the car park opposite Inveruglas hydro station.
We walked along the A82, before heading off to the right under the railway bridge to being the ascent. Along the way we passed a strange electricity station, the moisture in the air causing the wised to crackle and hiss.
Taking a photo of you, taking a photo of me...
Due to the cloud cover, there wasn't much to see.
...apart from clouds!
Into the mist.
We reached the summit.
Utilizing the shelter for our lunch. It's at this point that I realize I left my sandwiches in the car(!), luckily Rachel had enough soup for both of us!
The descent was met with snow, quite a lot of snow. Sadly it was too compacted for snow angels.
Rachel negotiation her way under a compacted snow tunnel.
Walking on snow is scary.
Very wintry conditions for May!
Heading down to Inveruglas Water, with the electricity plant in the background.
Rachel enjoying being back on hard ground.
Ben Vane: Done.
