Set off from a rather busy car park and followed the huge path all the way to the top. Lots of people had the same idea from toddlers right up to the more mature. Singles, couples and groups. Weather was cloudy to begin with but cleared as we reached about half way. Remained a bit hazy but still got some good views. Very windy at the top so lunch was ate quickly in the lee of the giant cairn. Another excellent day out with my daughter.

Pass and admire this hill every time I travel up to Scotland but never taken opportunity to walk it yet - grand name also. Sounds like it was a good day to blow away any hangovers that you may have had!
