Arrived at 10.50am, plenty spaces to park, away up the forestry path by 11am.
As we left the trees to climb the Hill met a fellow WH walker, Big Jim, where the 3 of us were blown around for the final ascent.
Susan Hung onto the trig point for a picture, took a blurry one of me and was off the hill before I could say what about this way :?
Back at the car for 1.45pm, great wee walk had by all

She done her normal up and down the hill 10 times more than us. I need to compile a list of hills that are dog friendly, she is still young so dont want to trust her with cliff edges or if there are sheep around.
