We camped at Glen Nevis Campsite wish has to be one of the best site in Scotland.

Arrived & pitched up to not so great weather

No pics at the top as the weather was atrocious, high winds and heavy showers would have killed my camera

Heading back down the weather started to break and we started getting some goods views

Nice pics- you seem to like Stob Ban! Shame about the weather but at least you got some sunshine eventually. :D When was this walked?

The Stob Ban pics are defiantly my favourites, I have changed the date walked to 12 June 2010

The bad weather just made the day more memorable
