First Munros, left car park around 0930am and back around 2pm. Legs were killing me the next day, but the weather was perfect and felt great to climb my first munros. Hope the pics do it justice

Thanks Chris, one day hopefully! Knocked up my 4th today, Ben Chonzie. Straighforward enough, I'll never learn to put suncream on though!!

Yeah nice range, great caravan/tent park just outside Killin near the start point which was ideal. Only managed the 2, but you can do a fair few if you have the time in the day. Heading back up there in July to do An Stuc and 3 others, also a nice circuit taking in 4 more.
