Dunclom,
This was a great day out I was armed with a new camera borrowed from a friend Fuji Finepix(9600) and didn't know what to shoot, so I thought Climb Dunclom and see what I could shoot on the way.The weather was great and I got some crackin shots, from the summit, of Ben Lomond capped with snow.
