From the train station past the power station Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2014
Today we met the not-so-bonny Scotland. Hahahaha. The weather, frankly, was brutal. Nice steep trail prettying from the get-go. Enjoyed the oddities of passing under the rail line, walking below the dark creepy damn, crawling up the metal ladder. Ran into sheep, couldn't see a damn thing, unfortunately, I bet it's beautiful up here in nice weather! Amazing seafood at EE USK afterward. Soaked to the bone, and darn cold!
What a day. Seven of us including three US pals climbed the circular ridge. Brilliant Views, great fun on the ridge and a real live helicopter mountain rescue. Better still the pub back in Oban was a dream.
