Previous attempts prevented by white-out on Beinn Ghlas and then extremely windy and stormy conditions on route to Ben Lawers. In contrast, today couldn't have been better. Lovely sunny day. Bit breezy which itself was warm at times. Plenty of time spent sitting in the sun admiring the landscape at leisure: there's not many days when you choose to go walking and the weather allows such leisurely enjoyment. JPM crew.

Always remember sitting on Meall Garbh looking at An Stuc thinking " do I go for it or not"
I'd already been blown over by high winds earlier.
Went fir ir and almost got blown off the summit again.
Bit of respect to the wind and the mountain never goes amiss.
Well in for getting there and getting the views this time and probably a feeling of " ya beauty- finally"
