What a day yesterday was so just headed up to Loch Muick (Mick) all I can say this was a great walk, no clouds and you could see for ever at the top, challenging at times on the way up for a novice and thought I had reached the top 3 times, met some nice people on the way and the walk back down was great with great views, looking forward to doing this again taking in other munro's.
