Great walk today.
Sun was shining and took the opportunity to get away from the royal wedding.

Took us longer than we anticipated - according to GPS was a 12.5km walking, we started at car park, headed for Beinn Glas and then onwards to Ben Lawers. on return took the bypass route excluding summit at Beinn Glas.

Paths are good, wind kicked in in last 100m to the summit of Beinn Glas, thought l was going to watch my 8 stone climbing buddy fly at one point.

Really enjoyed Beinn glas and then walking the ridge to the final push for ben Lawers, which looks a formidable opponent from the previous peak but fine in approach. No snow to report, except small patches of path.

Favorite walk so far.
