Lovely walk to the summit. Good views although hazy over the bigger mountains. Strong winds on the summit, they were forecast so that’s why chose this smaller hill to climb today.

Had a brief chat (actually more of a shout because of the wind) with a man who came up the way I was about to descend.

Headed back down, good views of Loch Gynack, saw a couple of red squirrels and several finches and tits.

All in all a very good walk which I thoroughly enjoyed.
