It was an almost perfect day as far as weather goes and we made good time and met some nice people on the way up.
As we neared the top views like the photo below came to us.
It didn't take us long to reach the top.
On the way down i saw a nice stack of stone the right height to take a timed Photo of the 3 of us.
Then before we knew it we were back at the bottom with slightly sore feet but apart from that none of us were particularly tired or worse for wear. I think that despite how rounded we are we bagged our second munro fairly easily and really enjoyed it and meeting some really nice people on the way.
Where we going next week ......?

Have you thought about the Arrochar Alps?
Beinn Narnain is a great hill, it has a bit of everything, and you can easily combine it with Beinn Ime or The Cobbler.

As for your next move, the Arrochar Alps are a good shout although if you're not fixated on Munro's, the Corbett Ben Ledi is a great walk.

What a great day you had for it, last weekend was super. Lovely looking views from up there, makes all the difference when the sun shines. Have to agree, The Cobbler is a good one to add to your to do list, we did it in May and the views are spectacular.

Me and my Dad went up Ben Chonzie. It was a brilliant father son day and the only thing to let it down was my brashers even tho they have only done around 100 miles have started blistering my heel
Met some really nice people and had a few nice chats. Couldn't ask for a better place to have lunch, sitting in the sun with the world at our feet.
