Everybody's Tolkein 'Bout Us

Ah well, the end of another working/fun weekend.  Did the usual run up to Blackwater hostel on Friday and had a very pleasant evening in the local watering holes. Saturday was an ascent of Garbh Bheinn on the most glorious of days and the view was incredible. Ben Nevis stood out crystal clear at 20 miles away with a light dusting of ice on its peak. My hill had amazing views down onto the Pap of Glencoe and Loch Leven.
On the Sunday, I had a couple of visits to The Kingshouse hotel and Red Squirrel campsite looking at possible Hobbit locations. Then it was a trip to Fort William and dropped in at the Nevis campsite there before heading over to Loch Ness and home.
All in all, apart from it going down to minus 2 on Saturday night, a very pleasant trip.
