Jane needed some fresh mountain air so we headed down Glen Luss and climbed Beinn Eich and Doune Hill, both hills just over 700m. The weather and visibility were good so we made good time and dropped into Glen Mollochan for the 4.5k march to the car. A great day with some interesting early alpines, split rocks, frog spawn and 8 dead sheep all within 5m of each other (very odd). The nearest farm house is called Edentaggart... I was tempted to see if he was in.

Raptors cough-up these 'fur balls'. When you break them open they often contain bone fragments

Spooky melting ice
