With restrictions now lifted from the travel distance for leisure, it was no surprise that the weather took a turn for the worse :roll: :lol: We didn't want to miss the chance to get out though, even if just 'drive-by' sight-seeing, so we headed north. We ended up going down Glen Roy and figured since we were here, we'd nip up this 'wee hill' - that's another Marilyn in the bag. :D

A wet morning, but everything's very green :)
Looking good in between showers
Heading up the hill in sunshine from the Glen Roy viewpoint
Rain not far away in the other direction
By the time we reached the summit, we were pretty drookit
Heading down again; Scoob had no sooner mentioned how slippy the wet ground was now, when I took a wee slide (rolls eyes! Took a while to get all the mud off, ha!)
Our stats; fairly close again, so I've recorded the average for ascent
