Ben Chonzie, 29 Mar'09

Ben Lawers and An Stuc from Ben ChonzieThis weekend was mainly home based. Saturday was a productive domestic day of spring cleaning, car-repair and gardening. A disagreement with a tree-banch left me with a black eye and cut eyebrow - I wonder if more injuries occur gardening than hillwalking ?

Sunday afternoon was spent with a relaxing stroll up Ben Chonzie with Keith and mum. The blue skies in the east were left behind for slightly overcast conditions in Perthshire. Inquisitive and slightly aggresive sheep were gathered for lambing in the fields around Invergeldie, which presents a wee bit of a problem for three dogs desperate for a walk. Beyond this a straightforward and plesant walk took us near to the ridge. Fine views in all directions, with the sun lighting up the snow capped Lawers peaks. A few photos on my Flickr page.
