Ah ... the glories of the Mid Summer Solstice! A balmy evening with clear skies and fantastic views in all directions. Got registered at Fenton's - "The Pub" - and we headed off at a brisk pace (part of the track shows up as running on the map!).

There were quite a few people enjoying the pleasure of Lug. Most were heading back for a refreshing tipple. We powered on up, stopping only once to enjoy the panorama out over the western reaches. We were all in great mood and fine shape.

As a reminder that conditions at the summit can be different from what you expect, we had to put on wind-cheaters as soon as we stopped at the trig point, even though the sun was still blazing. The constant wind here can cool you in a matter of minutes. Some other people were heading up in just trainers and T-shirts. Not sure what they intended to do once they reached the summit and started to descend. Without the climbing effort they would cool down drastically!

We enjoyed a nice snack and a drink (ensuring all dross was collected) and headed back down to The Pub at a sharp pace ... no hanging about here, as there was a creamy pint waiting. Even so we enjoyed the utterly magnificent views out over Camarahill, enhanced by the slight shadows thrown by the evening sun. It is easy to see what the Druids found so special about places like this.
