Issie, Mary, Michael and I had an early start today to beat getting a soaking on Ben Nevis. The forecast for afternoon rain was spot on as we just got back to the carpark when the rain came on, how satisfying is that? The guys from Australia were finishing their Scottish visit in style and were up and down in under 7 hours. We never even got the forecasted strong winds, with just a breeze on the summit. The usual litter louts have come out of the woodwork again I see, I brought down all the trash from the trig point. Today's little bundle of garbage included a beer bottle, cider can, tacky plastic ornaments, charity t shirts and the usual plastic drinks bottles. Looks a bit wet and wild tomorrow. Do you remember those beautiful sunny and hot days two weeks ago?
