Hello People
My first Munro Ben Wyvis, 12 people in the group I was with, most for the first time as well. Weather good all the way up until we reached the plateau, then cloud cover came down wind picked up and it started to rain.We all managed to make it to the top, rain stopped sun came out and the view was awsome well worth the climb.Had our refreshments then made our way back down, a few aches and pains when we got to the car park, but we did'nt mind we all enjoyed ourselves and we are planing another Munro sometime in the near future. I almost forgot I had my dog Sam with me and there was another dog Angus and they both made it to.
Bye for now Tom C.

Hey Tom, well done on Ben Wyvis - and welcome to the site.

Not sure if you realise this, but as you ticked the box to say this post was for your walks diary only, it won't appear on the Forum... so other people won't be reading it to reply. Just thought I should let you know in case that wasn't what you intended (you can edit the post and uncheck the box if you wanted this to be on the Forum).

Anyway - happy walking.
