On Sat 14th a select band of AMC members tackled Lochnagar from the north. We had meant to be camping in Ullapool, but there was a forecast of cold wet weather and we've all got that T-shirt.
The woods of Ballochbuie were as attractive as ever as we made our ascent in pleasant sunny conditions. The path, with bridge swept away in the winter, gave easy access onto the Mounth. Now the weather decided to close in a bit and the strong NW wind was accompanied by fairly frequent snow showers. Due to a bit of Proper Planning we had this at our backs and were soon around the plateau and at the summit for first lunch.
