Just thought I'd give a quick report on Ambers 2nd Munro.....Think she's got the buzz now and wants to crack all 283 before she's 9.
Friday 27th May. Nice day starting however I knew the weather was due in around Midday so we started off early for us at 8ish.
We started of at the car park near Succoth and soon crossed the road and decided to climb the newish wiggly path as the original look a bit awash, however I soon doubled back and we had a go at the pipeline path.

Concrete pillars from the Loch sloy project.

We soon got to the Old cobbler path and I decided we should go round towards the cobbler as it was particularly boggy. It didn't take us long to march up past the Narnain Boulders and onto to the path down from the Cobbler and up to Ben Ime where we met a bunch of lads just coming off the Cobbler who wanted to crack Ben Ime, Narnain and Lomond in One day..phwooh. Anyway they moved on to Ime which had by now disapeared in the grey mist and we turned right and moved on to Narnains peak., which was quite windy but still dry at his point.

Look dad the trig!

We didn't stay to long as the rain/sleet/snow was starting to pierce the old armour and moved on and over to the Cruach nam Miseag for the descent through the Spearhead, a light scramble unless your towing a westie!

The trek off was quite boggy in places however we were really sheltered from the rain and it was really quite warm although the Westie didn't enjoy the descent as much in the rain!

I piled on down the straight path with the concrete pillars however Amber and Mum decided they weren't up for that way and tracked down the old Cobbler path again, a wise move as those pillars are quite lethal in the wet for the unsure footed.

She is already talking of Ben Vane for her third Munro so maybe this weekend. 8) Here's a few more phots from the day.

Good stuff and well done Amber :D My 10yr old daughter just draws me a dirty look when I suggest coming out for a walk :lol: Ben Vane is a big steep bugger but I'm sure you'll all have no probs on it as its not any more difficult than Narnain. Just be aware of the false summits :lol: everytime you think you're there.......you're not :lol:

I had snow and hail on Beinn Narnain too! So the weather in Scotland hasn't improved...
Well done Amber!
