Having been out on Tuesday and done the last 3 munros in the Lawers range, my legs were still a little tired, however I couldn't miss the opportunity to take advantage of the good weather.

This is a very short climb if you just want to bag the munro like I did, however doing the Tarmachan Ridge looks like it would be good fun so I'll likely go back. No real difficulties to speak of on this route, nice and easy, although quite steep at points. Great vantage point to see the Lawers range too.

glad you had a good day I am intending saving this one to complete on for the reasons you stated, an easy up and down for non walkers and the ridge for anyone that fancies something a bit more interesting .
