Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulachean

On Monday I returned to these hills for the first time this year.

A cloudy start with some mist over the hills.

This lifted to give some good views of the surrounding hills. Ben More popping in and out of the clouds all day.

Fairly quite from the wildlife point of view, ravens croaking regularly but they kept their distance except for one that appeared from the cloud and got a fright. A family of ring ousels on the edge of Grey Heights. These are well named in the mist, with a steep side that the ousels hopped around.

I walked along to Beinn Tulachean before going back to Ardrain, this gave the clouds time to lift and the view to improve.

As I ate my lunch my phone made a stop motion video of the clouds drifting by Ben More:

By the afternoon it was warm enough to give me a bit of a burn and a great view of Ben Lui on the way down.:

I'd only brough my phone so messed about a bit with panos, videos and a slowShutter view of the burn:

16.6km, 1455m of up took me 7 hours
