BEN NEVIS

It was another wet and cloudy day again today for our group of 5 guys on The Ben. Very gloomy and very low cloud this morning. Probably the quietest I've ever seen the pony track with only 3 folk seen all day. Light rain and above 1000m snowing most of the day. There is now quite a few cm's of snow  lying on the plateau. Despite it being winter higher up, two of the folk on the hill were still determined to think it was summer with jeans, trainers and one rucksack between them, and of course the usual question when they saw us 'how far is it to the top'. Spider Man in presence today on the summit, just goes to show, even when it's quiet up there it's still a fun day out.

What a fabulous day! Weather could only be described as typically Scottish for the time of year. The coldness up top surprised everyone.

Thanks for your professional guidance on the day, much appreciated.

Spiderman.

Hi Spiderman
Glad you enjoyed it and hope you had a good journey home.

Hope to see you for a 'proper' winter day!
