13 &14 July More Ochil Adventures

It's been a while since the last time and there is no excuse other than being busy, busy. I also had my excellent and small waterproof camera stolen on holiday so it is harder to get photos out and about.

Anyway, here is the latest trip up in the Ochils. The adventurers were myself and nephew Tom. I like the photo of Alva Glen. If you let your imagination go a bit wild you could be looking at the high Andes with Machu Picu just round the corner.
We camped about at about 400m which gave us superb views over the Forth valley. Saturday's walk took us over Ben Buck and Ben Cleuch amongst others and finished with a leg burning descent to Castle Campbell.

Another great Ochils trip but as the ML assessment approaches watch out for the bar to be raised and see some Munroes being conquered.
