Never too keen on the warm weather or pollen but managed a short walk to Meall an t-Sithe. Not much of a destination in itself but good views and an enjoyable wee walk. Would be boggy in the wet though.
Thought I had the top to myself and only realised after about ten minutes that there was a couple sat a short distance away. Maybe it was their sitting in the relative shade, the colour of their clothing or their quietness but I was quite disconcerted by my lack of observation.
Anyway, managed to escape the hottest part of the day and made it back to the car relatively sneeze-free.

Not the quickest route but at least maintains the illusion of easy walking for a few minutes.
