We chose to extend WH route to include Carlins Cairn, recommend doing it from this side.

Great weather, aside from the wind which didn’t let up much but it didn’t put a damper on the day.

Paths easy to follow, small scramble on descent but nothing to stress over.

Stopped for a coffee on the way home, and got free doughnuts 🥳😃
