A surprisingly sheltered spot for lunch. Ben Ledi in the background.

Tired legs and a very dubious forecast dictated a much easier day on the Sunday of our weekend in the highlands. Ben A’an is an up and down, rather steeply, giving superb views from the top. It was chucking it down for most of the drive to the start of the walk, which was a bit off-putting, but in the event we did pretty well with the weather.

It was extremely windy on the top, but, just off the top, a small hollow gave a wonderfully sheltered spot from which to enjoy the view whilst eating a bit of lunch.

After that we went our separate ways home after another great weekend together.

Here‘s my account of our ascent of nearby Ben Ledi from a similar weekend 4 years ago. We climbed Ben Venue 5 years ago, but the weather wasn’t much cop and I didn’t take many photos, so the walk only really got half a mention on the post about the walk from the day before when we climbed Leum an Eireannaich.
