markhallamWalked up, flew down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 4, 1990


A fine summers evening I walked up to the top and then flew down by paraglider, back in the days when most paragliders were little more than parachutes - and serious cross country flying was just getting underway.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 1996


Spent 2 weeks in a farm house on the edge of Loch Dochart and bagged everything in site. The route we took was from the visitors center then Beinn Ghals-Ben Lawers-Creag an Fhithich - An Stuc - Meall Garbh, followed by one of the longest walkouts via the various sheilings. Fantastic weather and fabulous views, albeit rather windy on top.

Big winds at the top and snow on the way down--Bright sunshine by the time I got back to the parking lot. I love Scotland in May!

A f*** amount of snow flying almost horizontal, a lot of people, standing on the top drinking tea and eating sandwiches, and a dachshund going crazy at the top with all that snow ...
But it's a fine rememberance of hiking in Scotland, and I'm very glad we made it. And the descend via Meall Corrainaich was plain great!!

Cold and very misty day, still a bit of snow to get through at parts. No view from Beinn Ghlas and absoutely freezing but, continued on to reach the summit of Ben Lawers (which was exactly the same). Was lucky enough for the mist to clear and the sun to come out for the descent. Turned out a cracking day. A very worthwhile days walking.

Ben Lawers might not be a high summit, it even has a kept stairway trail to its top (which was in the process of being renewed when we climbed the mountain. Yet, thanks to Scottish weather even a hill like Ben Lawers can be memorable. We froze our asses off trying to take in a lunch on the wind swept top.
