Glencoe ski station munros 21/11/15

Glencoe ski car park was empty as we donned boots and set off the crisp air

Not sure on the above pic its either Ben Alder or the munros on East side of Loch Treig

Creise from the plateau of the main Ski area

Some lovely autumn colours

We skirted Bhuiridh on its west side
was a nasty bit of ground too

We had dinner on the top Clach Leathad the views were stunning with lots of cloud and moody dark clouds

So last trip too Scotland for the year,heres the first day ...Ben Vorlich

 So the last trip north beckoned,we had planned to camp for 2 nites but the forcast was for big winds and heavy snow...both can be dealt with but arent any fun for for Oscar,let alone us so we decided to drive up early Friday do a short walk and then another day walk on the Saturday,driving home on Sunday morning 

Oscar sporting the first winter snows of the 15/16 season  

We choose Ben Vorlich for the Friday and had an ok run of weather

 Above pics from phone and below a few off Gopro
