Wednesday 22 May. Bea didn’t fancy the Gondola ride so it was left to Karen & me to partake in this trip. The Gondola runs up the lower slopes of Aonach Mor (3,970ft) but only goes as far as 2,150ft contour. From here there are two short walks to viewpoints of the surrounding area. It was cold and blowing a gale when we got to the top so we made a short 0.9 mile round trip to Sgurr Finniosgaig where Karen took my picture for the blog. We quickly retreated back to the ski station café for coffee and decided not to bother with the second high level walk.
The ride on the Gondola only took about 10 minutes each way and we made our way down to the bottom for a 2.34 mile low level forest walk. It wasn’t a physically taxing day but made an interesting outing.
My car developed a brake light fault on the drive to Mull a couple of days ago so today was a good opportunity to drop it off at the local Ford dealer in Fort William to get it fixed. £20 to replace a bulb!
