15th December, 2007 – An Stuc and Ben Lawers

Second visit to this area this year but in much friendlier wind conditions. There was promise in the forecast of an inversion and to some extent we did get one on the summit of An Stuc with nice views of the surroundings but not much in the distance. A very bare (almost volcanic) looking Schiehallion was just popping out of the cloud in the distance beyond the summit of Meall Garbh. Luck ran out on the the view front as we climbed up Ben Lawers and we were soon in cloud / fog and remained so for most of the descent too. Some pretty funky ice / hoar formations on the rocks on the summit though.
