High winds? Hail stone? There’s nothing else for it except to don your shorts and go running in the hills. Ian and I where planning a lowish route (nothing over 600m) starting from near Glenfinnan but we ended up taking in Sgurr Ghiubhsachan at 849m. Although the name of the hill will mean little to most people, it is probably one of the most photographed hills in Scotland, it peeps up along the shores of Loch Shiel behind the popular Glenfinnan monument…
Anyway, apart from some hail as we set off, a dusting of fresh snow and some ferocious winds at the top the weather was pretty kind to us considering the forecast. The hill itself was great – rocky and rugged with great views of the surrounding area and not another person in sight!
The path on the way in was pretty wet and boggy but it proved to be nothing compared to what I found on the way down – I very nearly lost my shoes, thanks for help Ian!
