Wrong Loco - that's K1 62005, it doesn't come with a flying Ford Anglia.

BTW last time I was up there, back in 1988 you could get up to the top of the monument, remember it as being high enough to be quite scary with not a lot of space and a very low parapet wall.

You still can - as long as you're prepared to pay.

Here's another angle on the glen. I was off for a weekend in the hills.


You'll have to take my word for it, but this was Glen Finnan at 6 the next morning.

Nothing beats being on top of a mountain looking down on a valley shrouded in mist/low cloud.

Well worth getting up for such a stunning picture.

Dead right, the Holy Grail of hillwalking. I've been lucky, must have seen about a dozen inversions - Ime and Narnain, Ben More, Mamores, Suilven, Canisp come to mind.

Wasn't even 3000', Norrie. Never been up Ben Lomond, Lawers, Tarmachan?

Looks high to me, I have only done about 4 or 5 Munros, Ben Lomond being one of them

I was in among the clouds on Thursday, Broughten Heights and that got the heart pumping It cleared for our return and we could see the ups and down to get to the trig point, nice down that way, plenty of hills that are fine for our group of walkers
