My 27 years old daughter came to visit us with her son - my 7 years old grandson from the Czech Republic.
The target for our mountain's trip was very clear - she wanted to climb the highest mountain in Scotland :clap: :D
The forecast was not the best, but early start would allow us to avoid get wet on the way up...and it was like that...dry when climbing up, then started snowing, changing to rain in the lower levels on the way back down.
We started at 02:55 from home, stopped many times for some shots ( especially around Glencoe ), started ou climb shortly after 06:30.
Great day out with my daughter. 1st time on the Ben for her, 21st time there for me.
