Munro: Beinn Dubchraig Height: 977 m / 3204ft OS Map: 50 Picture: View from Summit of Ben Oss and Ben Lui It was a strange experience doing some walking and getting a sun tan. Scotland is not known for overly sunny conditions which had me in a state of confusion as to what gear I take so I took everything, winter jacket, fleeces, gloves, mittens, hat, scarf and crampons and soon after I had started off I regretted it. The Munro that I was trying was Beinn Dubchraig (Ben Doo-craig), one which I had attempted last summer and failed to get to the top. This time more prepared I was determined to do better. The Munro is situated just outside Tyndrum and I parked the car at a small car park at Dailrigh. The trickiest part of the Munro is the lower section of it. From the car park I followed the track over the bridge to the railway line. From there you get a good view of the Munro in front of you. However before you can get on to the main part of the Munro you first have to cross a small

It's drying up.

As the weather clears up after the Easter break I’m going to take my chance and head to the hills. I was actually supposed to go away camping this week and try climbing Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest mountain , however car trouble saw an end to that. I won’t travel too far, just to the back of the Ben Lawers range, near Killin. Hopefully the rain can hold for the day. This time I’ve managed to get a few friends along.
