Never gave Ben Vrackie much thought before but I decided to head here today.

Frozen path up to the lochan- which meant- no muddy boggy path wayhey.
The lochan was nearly all frozen .
The good pitched path disappears into the snow quite a bit.
I knew I had veered off a bit when I ended up to my knees in snow in places.
On up to the ridge line and it really opened up.
Taken back by the view over to Beinn a ghlo.
The whole range just pure white. Wow
Nice viewfinder and trig.
Took my time descending to the lochan and just past that I saw the 1st of many heading up.

Did i mention Beinn a Ghlo :D
Need to get back up there some time.

Cheers to Ben Vrackie
