Great practical tips here. Many thanks! It would be great if more reports were as useful as this. Keep up the good work....
I'm planning on doing this round this coming weekend, and I'll certainly be printing out your report to use as a wee crib sheet.
Share your personal walking route experiences in Scotland, and comment on other peoples' reports.
Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
