Evening run up Ben Wyvis

What a way to start two weeks off work – with an evening run up the local Munro! I joined a small crew from the main car park at 7pm on Thursday to make our way up the mountain. It took us just over two-and-a-half hours to get to the summit and back – not a bad effort considering this was only my second ‘proper’ hill run.

The views from the top were unbelievable on a clear night with the sun setting right above An Teallach in the west.

First we headed up through the forest and out onto the hillside in bright sunshine.

This pic is looking back as the climb up An Cabar really begins.

As it gets steeper there’s little choice but to slow to a walk…

Taking a break at the half-way boulder.

Looking back down, you can see the path winding its way up the hill from the forest.

From the top, An Teallach was lit beautifully by the setting sun.

Jonathan enjoys a gentle jog across the summit plateau.
