Wee Film....



A local Munro, and with this spell of fine weather I couldn’t rest a quick blast of blue skies and white peaks…. Leaving early I was a little distressed to see cloud clinging to the top! Maybe I wouldn’t get my views but as I neared the summit ridge the cloud was coming and going and giving some nice Brockens and Fog Bows. The views as always were spectacular. Headed back down then later a wee trip up Ben a’ An with the family before the weather returns to normal!!
