On the “Tourist Path”

24th February 2020

Was on the Tourist Path on Ben Nevis today to try to get some shelter. Conditions were OK lower down but deteriorated quickly with altitude. Some nasty squalls and poor visibility.

    Instructive series of pics showing how conditions can change in only 400 m. Should be compulsory viewing!
