A snowy day on the Luss Hills

Well Monday was the last day of the holidays so before returning to work we decided to have another day on the hills.  Ben Lomond was considered but we weren’t sure what the road to Rowardennan would be like.  So we decided to play safe and stick to the main roads and head for Luss  to do Beinn Dubh and Mid Hill.

It didn’t look to promising first thing but we were soon above the cloud that was shrouding Loch Lomond.

Eventually we got great views of the Arrochar Alps, particularly the Cobbler where I’d been on Christmas Day.

Quite a steep descent and another good test of the Kahtoola Mocrospikes especially on this mini ice rink…

Finished up getting back to Luss for a shot of Ben Lomond from the pier.  Hmm, the sign says no swimming eh!  Now that would be a brave man!
