This was a first Munro for daughter Susannah and dog Charlie, and my first since starting to count (most of mine were done three decades or more ago and I'm uncertain now which they were). It was a fine day on the way up and our late start meant having the hill to ourselves, or so it seemed. The path has received a lot of work since last doing this walk and the going was much easier than I remembered.

Near the top we met quite a few parties coming down but we had the summit and the splendid views it offered to ourselves. Charlie proved himself an excellent scrambler going up but quite a wimp going down the rocky ridge from the top.

Thick cloud and heavy rain decended as we walked back across the plateau to join the path back to Glenmore but lasted only an hour and did little to dampen our spirits. We arrived back at Glenmore Lodge in early evening a little under six hours from starting out. Susannah and Charlie both had sore feet, but I think Charlie's tail must have ached even more than his paws after so much wagging.

My only regret was that we had no camera to record our little adventure.
