I went up from Auchtertyre farm. Easy walking on a nice sunny day. I met some scouts at the summit. My first munro this year. I went down westwards and followed the tractor road to the car. Some interesting historical sites there also and a nice forest walk.

It's time to fresh up this very early spring trip with some photos.

This report has been posted on another site before, I hope you don't mind me posting it here too.
That's all I had from this trip.
