Ben Wyvis 03

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
