Travelled up to Strathpeffer and stayed over the weekend to take Detlef and Liz up Wyvis. They can see it from their kitchen window and had never been up it.
The weather was cruel, on us, it was clear all the way to An Cabar and then cloud descended to meet us and stayed. We left Detlef here, with no view he wasn't interested any more. Liz took the two dogs and we marched through the cloud, wind and a bit of rain to get to the top at the other end. Got the same view at the top I had last time I was up. We had our lunch walking back. Dropped back down and we dried off pretty quick.
