Given what I'd read about Chonzie before, I had pretty low expectations of this munro but still had to have it in the bag. Thanks to a beautiful summer day and a good early start, I have to say that although the hill itself is quite uneventful I was well rewarded with stunning views, especially of the Lawers range, as you can see. Given a clear day like this, unlike most people's experience I'd even go back and climb this again and would recommend it (on a good day!)
