Christmas Day

As usual on Christmas Day I popped over to see the kids open their Christmas presents first thing this morning. Then I decided to head for the hills! I’d thought about the Luss Hills but as I drove towards them there didn’t seem to be that much snow on them so decided to carry on for an extra few miles to Arrochar to do the Cobbler.

Set off from the car park at 12.15 after meeting this cheeky robin…

Cheeky Robin!

Got some excellent views over to Ben Lomond…

The path was quite icy but eventually got on to the flat bit and a view of the Cobbler…

Also tried out my Kahtoola Microspikes on the way down. Absolutely brilliant! Not a replacement for “proper” crampons but really useful for those icy paths you so often get at this time of the year.

Hope everyone is having a good break…heading south to God’s Own County tomorrow with the Tiger Cub to watch the mighty Tigers against Man United…couldn’t get tickets for any games last season but finally managed to get tickets this year…after all those years watching them struggling in the 70s and 80s this will make up for it!
