We were heading up to Fort William for the weekend for Euan's long-awaited shot at glory on Ben Nevis as he turned 30, and the plan was to make the most of a Friday off and tackle the talisman of Glencoe on the way up. Didn't like the look of the morning forecast, so took our time leaving Glasgow in the hope of it staying dry in the afternoon. The birthday boy was a wee bit hungover so it was probably best for all parties!

The torrential rain that poured down as we skirted Loch Lomond then arrived on Rannoch Moor did not bode well. As if by divine intervention, however, the rain which showered us as we booted up was the last we would see until we were safely back in the car some 5 and a half hours later :D

A really great day out with superb views, easy to see why this mountain is so celebrated. Bring on The Ben!
