I'd been told this was an easy munro, which it probably was in terms of incline and paths. However true to form for most of my hill walking (given that I only took this up more seriously a month ago!) the top was immersed in cloud = poor visibility, rain and severe winds! Once again, so much satisfaction in reaching the top and the views do appear on the way down again :) The horse shoe cairn provided enough shelter to stop for lunch at the top.

Didn't take any pics this time though.. must get better waterproofing system for my phone/camera as they get pretty steamed up being in pockets!
