Great walk and lots of fun - cloud cleared mid-morning to reveal fantastic views of the nearby big brothers around Glen Coe and Ben Nevis, especially good from the easy ridge to Stob Dubh. We were glad to find there was very little snow left on top, though just enough to manage a snowball fight! A really enjoyable introduction to our first ever munros :D

Congratulations on getting the first two done and dusted. Hope the rest are as much fun as these two.
I like reading other reports of ones I've done as looking at the photos bring backs memories of views I've also seen.
