Started this walk in brilliant sunshine at 1.30 pm
not very busy only saw about 20 people the whole time i was there
I got to the summit at 3.50 pm and there was an inch of snow on the top, but the best thing was I was the only person on the summit and had the mountain all to myself
and the mist cleared just as I began my descent so I was able to see some amazing views
A excellent walk but was glad to get back to my car which i did at 5.30 pm
So not bad for my 1st solo Munro
Will certainly be doing this again :D
