The forecast was for good weather so wanted a fairly early start , So set of at 8 Oclock I had the place to myself which was brilliant as i had heard this hill is very popular . Set of through the Nature reserve which was very nice with great paths and the sound of birds everywhere and two wagtails followed me for part of the way . The path up was fantastic and i made pretty good time although i was puffing a bit , need to loose bit of weight lol . I did read that it was fairly easy but iv never climbed a hill that was easy theyre all tough . As i reached the top of Ben Ghlas the cloud came rolling in which was pretty spectacular to see although i was a bit concerned it would spoil the view . I had the summit all to myself which was brilliant i took a few photo s and a wee video and then set of to Ben Lawers throw the clouds
It took me around 45min to get to the summit of Ben lawers and just as i arrived at the top the cloud started to shift so the views where pretty spectacular . Once again i had the summit to myself for around 45 min before anyone else arrived so it was brilliant it was cold as the wind was pretty chilly but i hung about just taking it all in for 2 hrs before i set of back down , It was and is a fantastic Hill with great well Kept paths and amazing views . One of My Favourites
