A couple of my friends and I set out to spend a weekend camping in Fort William and climbing the highest mountain in Britain. We were lucky with the unpredictable Scottish weather and got a sunny day although it was a little cloudy and bloody freezing at the summit.
- Interesting bit, seeing the man fell running down a steep side of hill and up the opposite side.
- Worst bit, all the other walkers, hoards of them at points.
- Best bit, getting to the pub afterwards.
- Word of warning.... bring warm clothes for the top even if its a warm sunny day at the bottom.
