Choices, choices!! Sup board or climbing gear?  On a bright sunny January morn it had to be one of these two.  I couldn't make up my mind so both kits went into the car and two and a half hours later I found myself at Lochawe in Argyll where the bright sunshine and snow on the hills persuaded me to don my walking boots and backpack and head off towards Ben Cruachan with my camera.  At 1126 metres I knew the snow would challenge me and it did.  Crampons and ice axe were needed to get up through the narrow gap between Coire Dearg and Ben Cruachan.  Should I have taken the easier route? - probably but the satisfaction of getting the job done this way was much greater.  I expected cold up high but was surprised to find one of my water bottles frozen - that's a first!  The views were fantastic even if muted slightly by a haze. #bencruachan #bencruachandam #hiking #hikingscotland #hillwalking #hillwalkingscotland #hillclimbing #snow #snowpeaks #icecaps #mountain #mountains #munrobagging #munro #coiredearg #lochawe #argyll #argyllandbute #visitscotland #canon5dmarkiv #canonphotography #outdoorsman #outdoorworld #passofbrander #cruachanreservoir #cruachandam #challengelife

During our trip to Scotland Olly and I hiked up Ben Cruachan...almost. Our main aim was to see Cruachan dam which we did...sort of πŸ™ˆ 
Despite it being so cold that whole waterfalls were frozen solid we just didn't feel it, until we stopped at the dam, because our bodies were working so hard; it's definitely the toughest hike I've done. We got to the top and with the dam finally insight... what do you know a fog cloud came in πŸ˜‚ Seeing the reservoir would've been a great reward it looks beautiful in the pictures...well not my pictures cause it's just fog but still πŸ˜‚ The dam walkway was as far as we went due to the fog and quite frankly the snow was a tad dangerous but it was an adventure and I'm glad we did it...despite only getting a picture of the fog πŸ™ˆ 
Scotland is so beautiful πŸ’™

The view from the top, almost above the clouds. It was incredibly windy once I got up here and difficult to see where I was going.
On this trip, I should have gone down once I had summited Ben Cruachan, but I got a bit greedy Munro Bagging, and tried to get across to Stob Daimh in horrible conditions.
Learned a lot on this trip, not least that Autumn is a terrible time to go walking if you want good views.

The different perspectives that hiking gives is very interesting. Looking up at this ridge line from the reservoir, it was a fairly mild day, but once I got up there, I was hanging onto rocks to stop myself being buffeted off by the intense winds.
My next post will show the view from the top.

The Cruachan Reservoir with the surrounding peaks. Getting the right day can give great views down to Loch Etive and possibly let you meet a couple of Highland deer.

The ridge line that connects Ben Cruachan and Stob Daimh, covered in cloud.
I had some problems with this route, going down the wrong ridges while getting lost in the clouds. But I did see and hear some deer talking to each other, which was amazing.
This time of year is not great for views as clouds are a constant fixture on the peaks, can't wait for calmer weather to get back up in the Highlands.
