Ord Ban - 28th May

Ord Ban is a small Marilyn just south of Aviemore with relatively easy access from the Glen Feshie road - or so we thought.

 The sunshine was something of a contrast with the rest of the week and it seemed we might have a short, enjoyable, sunny climb to the trig point. One thing after another seemed to get in our way so that by the time we had cleared the woods we were just in time to see a storm sweeping up the valley on its way to the Cairngorms. 

With perfect timing we arrived at the trig point at the same time as the snow storm, twas ever thus.

  1. Hi - have once again caught up with a lot of your posts, and enjoyed the read and your photo's.

    The snowy ones made me feel cold but the view on this one 'looking north towards Aviemore' is so lovely.

    Thanks again and I will be back to catch up again.

    All the best Jan
