Very clear path visible from the start at the tea rooms, right up the hill......until it disappeared into cloud!

Lots of dog walkers and people out for what looked like their regular weekend stroll up Tinto. Not a lot to say,,its a rocky upward climb, getting to the top in about 1hr 30 mins, strong wind, very low flying cloud and snatches of visibility of the surrounding area. Back down by the same route, again, rocky descent, arriving back at the car park by 12:30.
