March 30th to April 4th
10 Fylde ramblers stayed in Drymen, near Loch Lomond, having travelled with G-Line Coaches for their annual Scottish walking holiday.
Two levels of walks were offered and the photos are from the tougher ability group. The weather was cloudy, overall, but never the threatened soaking which was forecast for a couple of the days. It was mild for the time of year, with pockets of snow on the higher fells and misty, snow-covered peaks.
Dinner each evening - good food and company
Sunshine for the approach of The Cobbler from Arrochar
The summit approach to The Cobbler gave poor visibility and deep pockets of snow
Huge erratics along the way gave interesting combinations of material
The summit of The Cobbler never did clear of cloud
Evidence of the winter gales was everywhere
The sodden ground was torn up as the winter high winds felled trees
