I was late arriving at the car park, and fortunately someone left just as I was exploring the last line of cars, so thank you white Honda!
The sky was clear, I'd paid my £2, so time to get cracking - I put my head down and started up the well-worn path.
Eventually I got to the snow line, at which point it dawned on me to get out my phone and take a few (or should it be phew - ok, no more puns) photos..
I then carried on to the summit of Ben Lawers, to be rewarded with spectacular views - such a contrast to my previous ascent some 33 years ago which even now I remember as unrelentingly cloudy & damp..
After that one I really had to step on it, over to Beinn Ghlas and finally arriving back at the car park at 17:15, tired but very happy!

We did the Carn Mairg Group of 4 and Beinn Ghlas was looking awesome as we drove past her in the morning.
Well done getting back out there and hope you are bitten again after the amazing day we had on Sunday?

Absolutely - I was bitten at age 12 and am really just picking up where I left off
I saw a report for the walk you did on Sunday (by Maxie23), it looks equally spectacular.
