Munros: Beinn Ghlas, Ben Lawers

Date walked: 05/01/2022

Time taken: 5 hours

Ascent: 942m

In a final trip of 2021 Alistair visited the Lawers Range to hike Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas and was lucky enough to experience a stunning Cloud Inversion throughout the walk. The Lawers Range is situated to the north of Loch Tay and East of the town of Killin, and offers several easily accessible walks from it's purpose built car park. There is a £3 charge for parking however if you are a National Trust for Scotland member you can park for free.

It was quite some time between walks for Alistair however this was a glorious end to the year.
