Ben Lomond 5th May 2018 on a nice sunny day at the bottom 18 deg. Then walking up Into the clouds where winds at the top peaked 35 Knots passing some snow drifts 10 mins before the summit!!

Route is Easily defined from car park through the woods onto the Mountain.

Stone laid path all the way to 10mins before the summit where you need to be mindful of the summit location especially in low vis.

We were going to descend down the opposite side but abandoned due to bad vis.

Zero Visibility due to Clouds at Summit

20M max Vis through the cloud layer

Lots of sheep and lambs up to 700m
