My nice warm wooly hat had been left in the car and then the drawstrings on my hood decided this was a fine moment to snap, so I descended clutching my hood to my ears, so if you saw someone with walking poles stuck from their head like a portable TV antenna....that was me.
We stopped and spoke to a guy who mentioned that he'd left his hat in the car so i'm guessing that must have been you. I was in a group of about a dozen walkers.

Weather was pretty poor through out. We did however get a good couple hours near the end of our trip on the Sunday afternoon with nice views over to Ben Chonzie..
Ps. The chipper is super in Comrie,well worth the visit.

I appeal to amateurs like me to get yourself familiar with GPS systems and research your route well before taking this on. I also made the mistake of stepping on the green mossy stuff and landed thigh deep in mud.
Had we not been lost at that moment I would have seen the funny side. I felt yesterday like the kind of person that ends up getting rescued by Mountain Rescue and had it not been for two helpful young men with GPS on their phone - we might well have been. A lot of lessons were learnt yesterday and I have a renewed respect for even the humblest of Munros!!
