My first Munro, and a beauty it is. What a great day out, the fantastic weather on the day probably helped. :D

Maybe a little ambitious for a group of 9 first timers with little experience, but what an introduction to Munros, and definitely one that will hook you.

The views were also incredible and well worth the effort. :D
