|Dad and I went for quite a short walk up Beinn an Lochain above the Rest and Be Thankful pass in the Arrochar Alps. We walked up the fine North East ridge as most people do, and descended more or less from the summit straight back to the car. Neither of us had been up it before which was good. We missed the rain which passed to the north of us and it stayed dry all day, although I did manage to do a headplant into a boggy bit within sight of the car park. I don't think anyone saw it as they were all stuffing their faces with burgers from the van parked next to the car.
