to Loch Katrine and Loch Arklet to the east, with Ben Ledi on the horizon to the left and Ben Venue (which I climbed last week) in the centre...
and to the Loch Sloy dam to the south-west.
As we climbed higher, we saw the summit of Ben Vorlich itself ahead.
To the south-east we had views across to Ben Lomond, which I also climbed last week.
Near the summit, we came through a wide gap between rocky outcrops.
I recognised this as the subject of a photo I took under very different conditions in December 1973. Later I painted a watercolour from this photo.
