Ben Lawers & Beinn Ghlas

Munros: Beinn Ghlas, Ben Lawers

Date walked: 16/10/2020

Time taken: 5.5 hours

Distance: 12.7km

Ascent: 927m

Myself, my 11 year old and dog climbed Ben Lawers on Friday (October 2020)

this is just a wee note to folk who plan on climbing with children. In my opinion, this is a proper mountain despite being the same rating as Ben Chonzie, this is a totally different experience and climb. it shouldn't be underestimated but is very doable.

The weather at the top was very cold, ice was forming in places, sight was limited in parts. I recommend taking the path back down, however, I reckon this would be a boring way to climb and you would miss one munro.

Overall a fantastic experience but that will be the munros until 2021 now
