Ard Grasses

The snow-covered slopes of Ben Lomond, Scotlands most southerly peak over 3000', are reflected in the still waters of Loch Ard.


The morning was so promising, with a dense fog covering the Central Belt of Scotland, which would (according to the weather forecast) gradually clear as it was burned off by the sun. Great, I thought, a bit of mist on the loch. Oh yeah .. clear as the proverbial bell when I arrived. If I've learned nothing else over the past couple of years, it's that the hills make their own weather and the "official" forecast bears little relation to reality. Ah well .. better luck next time.
