Above The Garbat Forest Track on a Newly Constructed Footpath

First Sighting of Ben Wyvis

The New Path Continues Through The Heather

Making Good Time and Gaining Height Quickly

The Higher we go The Colder and Wetter it Gets

As The Path Climbs Higher Visibility Gets Less

The Wind is Starting to Pick up Now

I'm Off

Getting Worse

Getting Battered by Wind and Rain

At Last Some Shelter The Summit of Ben Wyvis

The Weather Improves as we Head Back Down Off The Summit

Looking Back The Summit is Now Clear

Dropping Steeply Back Down

Having A Break Out of The Wind and Rain

Off we go Again
