... that I booked online several months ago. They wouldn't let us pick our seats, but we were guaranteed to have seats together. The price seems a bit high now; it was 58 pounds each for the return trip. The two towns are about forty miles apart, and the ride was about two hours each way. We passed through hilly countryside, small villages, beautiful shores of lochs, and several dark tunnels.

The coach we were in was the closest to ...

... were in cold wind and cloud. However as we descended to the Window things started to clear, and we had good views from the high summit plateau and all around us from the summit of Creag Meagaidh. We descended back to the Window, and down the steep snow slope to the lake. (was it an arctic char we saw rising?) The descent down the valley was excellent and we got back to the car after 8+1/2 lovely ...

A Tale of 2 Beinns, and a good soaking

... on this part. There are 2 summits so we visited both (it'd be a travesty not to have visited the 'right one'),
before descending through a short squall on the descent before crossing the boggy Col at 600m, ready to start the ascent up Beinn a Chaorainn. We had good views over loch Treig at this point,
the grey corries and Aonoch mor and Beag.
However we watched them disappear ...

... Nevis on our way back into town for a mini-hike around the base of the mountain, since our original hiking plans had been scrapped for the day. Side note: glen is a valley and ben is a mountain in Gaelic. The landscape was beautiful with the heavy mist settled over the lush green valley, and there were more sheep than people - always a good sign! We stopped at the Ben Nevis Inn, located at the trailhead of the main route to the top, and enjoyed a pint before heading ...

    Quite a nice room, courteous staff, good breakfast - a bit too much fat for my taste. Tried haggis for the first time. I got to the breakfast buffet close to the end of service and the eggs were a bit rubbery, my fault for waiting so long. The fruit was watermelon, grapefruit, and plums. Hot buffet included all manner of sausages, ham, bacon, and other meats; including haggis. They had potato 'scones', very like the potato wedges you get at McDonald's. Check out time was 11, gave me time for a little nap.
