This was our 2nd choice and we were forced to change from the 5 sisters due to poor weather and low cloud conditions, however a lovely walk none the less.
An easy to follow track leads right to the top. Enough said.

Yeah most definately, with low cloud and mist this walk was still possible, and enjoyable even in the conditions. :D
