Perfect day for a walk. Cloud almost non-existent and temp around 15C when we set off.

Followed the path onto the shoulder and then headed fairly straight up from there. About 3/4 of the way up it turned quite boggy but this petered out after about an hour or so.

After this is got a little steeper and there was a bit of a careful choice in the path we were following.

On top the views were stunning! 360 degrees of sunshine and very little wind. (pics to follow)

The walk back down was uneventful although we did lose the path trying to avoid the worst of the bogs and had to veer right once past them.

I would say this was my favourite hill to date. :D
