Snowy Whangie

First walk of the season in the snow and was a fair amount of snow as well. Again left Glasgow and wasn’t expecting the day to turn out like that. Was thinking it would be cold but didn’t realise the snow was lying so low.

Not Reaching The Top

On Sunday myself, Kat, Morag ( Kat’s Mum) and Maia went for a hill walk on Beinn Chabhair but as you might have guessed from the blog title we didn’t manage to get to the top. Due to various factors we got to about an hour away from the summit and had to turn round.
