Incredibly wet on Ben Nevis
Today I was marshalling for a large group of 59 fund raisers walk up Ben Nevis. The event was organised by Marie Curie and every participant had done their part and raised lots of money. Today was one of the busiest days I've seen despite the conditions. It was mild and very wet with visibility very poor. Cloud base even touched down to the Ben Nevis Inn around mid morning. There was never a point today where I couldn't see another person, it was a constant train of people both up and down, more miserable looking faces than happy ones. There were lots of 'panda eye's' wandering around as well as many people who had clearly forgot their waterproofs who wet obviously soaked to the skin. The John Muir Trust were out doing a summit litter pick, good on them to be out in this weather! Anyway, back up to Skye tomorrow so hopefully the weather is a little more favourable.
