GM/WS-339 - Druim na h-Earba


GM/WS-339 - Druim na h-Earba

12/06/2018

A nice easy one after ‘The Ben’

Although I had activated this some years ago it was a new one for Barry and also it was a nice leisurely stroll to the summit for tired legs after Ben Nevis the previous day.  It was a glorious day so after playing radio we relaxed and enjoyed the views of Ben Nevis and Loch Linnnhe.
