Scotland 2014

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
