Ben Nevis was busy today and for good reason. The snow has receded quickly so that most of the walk up from Glen Nevis can be done on the rocks. The sun was shining again and the wind was lighter than previously. It was also not too hot so it made for great conditions to be out and about. We had just one walker in our Guided Group Walk, Delicia, who came over from the US to climb Ben Nevis. She and Connor made it to the top in good time so they went down to the Half Way Lochain and round towards the CIC before coming down by the Allt a'Mhuillin. So Delicia had a brilliant tour of the whole mountain.
Meanwhile Scott, Mark and their team of bikers went up to the CIC Hut as well to ride the excellent Allt a'Mhuillin trail and some of the natural and built single track in Leanachan Forest. They stopped a couple of times to watch the British Downhill Series riders in action and soak up the atmosphere at Nevis Range too. It looks like this period of fantastic weather might break down this week so make sure you get out and enjoy it while it lasts.
