Decided and very looking forward to go to this part of Highland, i left home very early morning, have prepared some routes, but still very unsure of choice because of the weather forecast I just said to myself "Lets go and see !" As it was my day off, not rush at all, I stopped many times during my way, making some photos and watching the sky. One of my plan was Aonach Eagach, but arrived to Glencoe and saw the mountains covered by dark clouds...also still wet ground after previous rain and dew...I continued a few miles ahead to see how looks Beinn a'Bheithir - two munros there was also in my wish list...but as I saw, both of them was completly covered in clouds...misty around...and I really wanted make some photos from the summits with all the views around. 8) I turned back and then headed to Kinlochleven as the side looked much better...clear sky with some light clouds only...Well, decision made...Mamores chosen in hope that the weather will not get worse there :roll: Bellow you can enjoy the photo story of the great day :wink: Finally I was happy for the choice - not so bad for a plan "C" :D 8) :wink:
