When I did these two around two years ago, I couldn't see a thing. So they were put on the to-redo list so I could see the views. Skip forward two years, Millie who accompanied me on the first trip has retired from the big hills but Moss has came along to take her place for another shot and this time I wasn't disappointed! Could see for miles! It is a clear path all the way, and Beinn Ghlas was much easier to find this time. Last time because I couldn't see a thing I wasn't sure if I was at the highest point and wasn't sure if the little pile of stones was a marker for something else or marking the summit. Poor summit really lives in the shadow of it's larger neighbour! Anyway, will just fill the rest of this report with mostly photos!

Moss got her turn on the summit after I got some photos for other people on their phones, a guy was taking a selfie with his kid behind him at the summit so I offered to get a photo of them both at the summit and another guy with a kid asked if I'd get one of them too. Moss of course tried to photobomb not understanding why I didn't want her in front of the camera for once!

I'm going to drive past a couple of times in the next couple of months. If it's covered in cloud I'll know the weather gods have gone back to normal with Lawers and you were the lucky one they chose to give a view too :D
