Not much to say except that it's much much steeper than it looks, so be ready for that. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The stile in this dip that some reports said was broken has been fixed and is ok now.

Views from the top are amazing, all across Fife and Firth of Forth:

I agree. In the winter, even a tiny bit of snow can send you sliding around. In the very dry weater the earth beneath seems to transform itself into ball -bearings and you do the same. While between times a quagmire develops between the sentry gorse bushes which guard the only way up. Moreover, there is a false summit. When I foolishly leave it yet again to the last one of my round of 7 Marilyns in a day, it is always the sting in the tail. If I could find out anouther route that doesn't end up at Benary with a long drive home, I would. As you can see, I have a LOVE HATE REALTIONSHIP WITH lARGO LAW, AS i SUSPECT DO YOU.
