I believe it is one of the easier Munro's, so won't try to do any fancy guide's or tips. It was a suprise to see such a good path much of the way!
I found it not too hard going, though needed a few stops here and there to catch the breath, or take a drink. Climbing over some of the boulder's took a bit of getting used to. It was severely cold and quite windy on the top, so visibility of Kinloch Rannoch and surrounds was poor. Think we were just about two hours to the top. Best bit was getting the boots off and getting back out the car, to chew the cud, over a pint in the George. All in all, a great day, which gave me the urge to try more.
Sorry if report a bit wonky. Seems I've still to master technomology!

Nah, can't be sure if I did Ben Ime or not. It was way back about 1984 and didn't mean much, but I'd always had it in my head that was what we had climbed. Because I'm not sure, I can't count it, so Schiehallion will go down as my first!
