A dry and hot spell of weather ahead across The Highlands. Roger was out with me today and he wanted to savour the wonderful views of the north face of Ben Nevis. He had been up The Ben via the Piny Track several years ago but wanted to see the ' real Ben Nevis'. There was very little wind, hot temperatures and bright spells, despite quite a bit of high level cloud. Roger and I were round in a fast time, hope I can wizz round the hills when I'm his age!
