Winter Solstice on Ben Lomond

Route: Ben Lomond

Munros: Ben Lomond

Date walked: 21/12/2017

Time taken: 4 hours

Distance: 13.44km

Ascent: 1043m

A surprising day on Ben Lomond, once out of the clouds a super cloud inversion with views in all directions. The surprising part was that I saw no-one until I had almost returned - a very quite day on the mountain and what an epic view to miss !

Makes a great end to the year on the hills for me.... #143
