Parking my car like 2 weeks prior I geared up and made my way to the top. The weather was beautiful and made a huge difference to the gale force winds I had encountered the first time.
Climbing a hill the secodn time is always so much easier and this time the beautiful scenery made me stop often and stare. Could Beinn an Lochain turn out to be my favorite mountain?
I will let the pictures tell the story and if you have the chance, climb this beautiful hill in winter...its a beauty!

Looks like somebody might have abseiled from that bit of tat in the rock with the karabiner hanging from it. Great report and stunning photos.

You seem to have a very powerful zoom to pick out such detail of the neighbouring peaks. Fantastic day! Fantastic photos! Fantastic report!
