Helen and Paul took me over to Loch Achray where we walked up Ben Venue. There had been heavy rain yesterday and the ground was wet with snow up on highest tops. Very little on Ben Venue at all. The rivers and burns were big and the boggy parts climbing up to the bealach with other path were very wet. It was also very windy up top, barely able to stay upright, had to lie down to take some photos. Wind chill was incredible. We were lucky though, sunny almost all the time, coming back caught in a snow shower up top and a rain shower lower down.
