Started out in cloud and pretty grumpy at the potential loss of views but by the first climb and the first minor summit the misty clouds cleared and the views got better and better as the walk progressed. Great Munro and the ridge was a treat. Sarah(13) David(13) and Alice(10) walked three Tops and one Munro...and Sam (10) opted out of a Top.
