13°C, brisk SW Bringing showers late afternoon.
Part of the Ballachulish horseshoe. Met a group of guys from around north Manchester getting ready for a walk. I asked where they were going to go. They showed me on a route card, so I said yes to their invite.
I was delighted after a somewhat sluggish start. Those leaden clouds were quite off-putting.
The guys were all retired from work and lifelong fell runners. Their experience bodes well.
We waked up the first half of the Ballachulish horseshoe. The group decision was to turn back before the second Munro because of the risk of failing light and building rain. Anyway, it was an excellent day out and kick-started my trip after a slow morning’s start.
