OBSERVATORY GULLY, BEN NEVIS
A fine day again. I took a wander up to Observatory on The Ben. I found an almost brand new climbing helmet on the path and saw a few climbers gearing up for Tower Ridge so I did my good deed for the day and returned there neglected bit of head wear, gratefully received. It's a bit of a slog up scree but a path of sorts does exist. It was a nice and peaceful walk up to Echo Wall, which does actually echo. Interesting finding various bits of ironmongery from the observatory still knocking about. The big shower clouds never came to anything and it was dry, warm and sunny all day.
