Well after a terrible day on Saturday me and the wee man turned and headed home we were going to climb Saturday camp over then maby climb meall nan tarmachan in the morning but never mind a day wasted but we weren't giving up we were back on Sunday morning dry sunny but windy which was good cause I didn't need to cover us in midge repellant we walked up the usual route through the nature trail before turning right up ghlas,it was at this point I realised sitting on the couch for 3 weeks doing nothing isn't good for the legs but I kept plodding on with the wee boy just leaving me finally we made it to the summit couple of photos a banana and some Jaffa cakes and we were off again the wee rest done the world of good and I got a second wind on the way up lawers where the views were absolutely stunning I fell in love with the place especially the corrie with lochan nan cat anyway after a wee while enjoying it it was time to go so back down the quick way and back to the car passing a few in sandels ect and someone lying sleeping in the middle of nowhere now where to go next ??
