Thinking I had warp drive in the car I expected to drive there in about 1 1/2 hrs so was running late not a good impression for organising a walk but made it there eventually.
To my surprise the hill was covered in snow another surprise so we set off hoping for the best. The track was good, easy navigation, and looked great covered in snow - the dogs were having a ball but Allen M was looking for his spare pair of lungs as we approached the first top. At this point we were the only people on the hill but, as we stopped for a cuppa, some one must have dropped a bus off at the bottom of the hill.
We approached the gully to the summit covered
in deep snow but had to wait in the queue for the climb onto the summit
- there were about 2 dozen people climbing the gully. I have never
seen so many people waiting to go up a hill.
Back in the pub, at the falls of Dochart,
we all enjoyed a wee drink in front of a big roaring coal fire. Some
of us enjoyed the drink a wee bit too much or was is it just the excitement
of the day that got to Angie. Think it had something to do
with the glayva putting a we glow on her face and not the fire. Another
fine day out for Air na Creggan in testing conditions.
