This was another work's walk with 9 of us on the trip. The day started of very well for March with the clouds rolling over the tops of the hills but as we got beyond the summit of Conival, the clouds got thicker until coming back from Ben More Assynt, visibility was down to 50 feet.

It was a good walk, ranging from boggy marsh land to sharp rocks and even snow. Unfortunately, my knees packed in on the way down and I'd have been lost without my walking poles which helped me down. There is a pattern developing here with me knees - anyone know how to fix them?
