Joined a local hill walking group for this outing - nice folks, fairly leisurely pace (which was fine with me as I'd just been up a munro the day before!) and plenty of rest stops. I did find it tougher to get going again after the first break only 1hr in to the day - I find it much better to just slow down but keep moving!

Great weather for the second day in a row! Track to the foot of the hill was fine, part of the group tackled a trickier ascent but I stuck with those who headed further round the track to find a still-very-steep but less daunting route up. Lovely views from the top, lunch in the sunshine! :D Descent was through the heather, pretty steep in parts, and walked along the river a short way to cross the river on a bridge to get back to bus for heading home.

further round the track, this seemed like the better place to start ascent
