Hi Martha,
Nice posing picture there :D I was over Ben Lui group today and it never rained on the whole round. When I was at the top of the last munro there seemed to be rain clouds over the hills in every direction (except over me) :lol: so it was pretty much pot luck as far as the weather was concerned. Nice walk Ben Lawers :D
