Start point - Hotel Lawers car park. There is not any parking fee as the owner allowes walkers free parking if they will spend some money for an meal or drink in the hotel ( before or after the walk ).
:o :clap: :)

After a short walk through a forest, there was a heavy fog without any visibility, not any navigation points or shape of hills. I used GPS - focused to 1st Munro. This picture is from the ascend and the visibility is getting better...
:crazy: :)

Fine inversion you experienced there, Petr. Good for me to see the pics and get a feel for the lie of the land - the Lawers Munros and a few others around there are on my radar for this year.
