Headed up here on a last minute decision and glad we went. Beautiful scenery and the last of the Lawers group to be bagged! Nice easy ascent, decided to leave the ridge for another time as only one of us had crampons and was a bit icy!
Hope you like the photos :)

Yeah, cracking photos and brought back great memories, cheers! 8) This was my first Munro, with my son, and I've climbed it twice now. Plus a separate ascent of Meall Garbh when doing the winter skills. This hill will always be special to me. :D
