A fantastic walk and just a little bit scary in the snow :shock: Managed the whole walk without crampons and was nearly back at the car when I went arse over tit and covered in mud :lol: Doh!

A fine mountain in the winter 8) The views all round are superb. Glad you enjoyed it, and the enforced mud-bath :lol:

This is one of my favourite hills. Love the hill itself and airy feeling it gives you. The views of the surrounding area are stunning too.

It's good to see everyone gets the same feeling with this hill - as one with a bit of an edge to it making it feel really exhilarating!
