Saturday 3rd April 2003

This was yet another beautiful day for a Bible Class expedition. There were six young folk and three not so young folk. Ben Wyvis is 3432 ft and is a lovely walk. The path has been upgraded recently and you could walk it in your carpet slippers. As usual I probably had the best day – I really enjoyed it – thanks everyone.

The way ahead, it looks awful high

Hamish enjoying his food

It is now the Ben Wyvis Nature Reserve – it is being well done. The path is tremendous. Just a few years ago the summit was a feet wetting experience

The gate between the forest and the wild

Looking down towards Loch Glascarnoch

The way ahead looks no nearer

The way we have come, so far

John with Roslyn hiding behind him
Dave – not a cheery expression

Again looking down to Loch Glascarnoch

Little Wyvis

David, Alice, John and Hamish. Who is hiding again ? Yes, Roslyn.

The river looks a long way down now

We are now higher than Little Wyvis

The first summit coming up

Carina and Alice

At the summit. These triangulation cairns were used by the Ordinance Survey to map Britain

Looking to Alness/Invergordon – the shiney object to the right is the sun reflecting off a shed at Nigg. The Novar Windfarm can just be made out in the centre

Carn Chuniach on the Sutherland/Ross-shire border

The summit is broad and flat

Looking back, and nearly down

What a lovely end to the day – not cloud in the sky
