Having been lucky with glorious weather on my first 2 Munros, the luck had to run out. Started in reasonable conditions and had a very enjoyable climb to the top.

out of focus summit shot... :-( 10sec to place camera and scramble back over the rocks.. :-)

Unfortunately after about 3 minutes on the top, and just about to open the sandwiches, the heavens opened.

Which in turn resulted in a hurried descent.
Still a very enjoyable day out and planning my next climb now. :D
