Hardly slept that night with excitement so I was up at the crack of dawn wondering what munro too tackle, the night before i looked at maps to see what was close by and it was either cairngorms or ben wyvis , the other half did'nt want the cairngorms as there would be to much snow there so wyvis it was.
Arrived at the car park at 9am and just had enough room for 1 more car, thinking to myself were late cause everybody was gone, it seemed a straight forward mountain according to the books and it was.... for me the other half said if i knew it was going to be like this i would have stayed in bed.. LOL. But she did it and at the end she was glad she did, a sense of achievment as she put it. The views and light was fantastic I will let the photos do the talking.
Great day and the other walkers we met were so nice and helpful towards us especially the wife as she struggled,all the encouragment she recieved from others kept her going, so if you were one of that people thank you very much.

Little Wyvis is a perfect walk in winter conditions, on a good day views are stunning. I'm waiting for a chance to re-climb the Big Ben in snow, maybe next winter...
