When we were walking towards Lochnagar we saw the massive cliffs.

We were walking and it was a very easy walk to the mountain even when we were on the mountain it was very easy.

We get up and we had to go through this boulder field when it was windy. So we got past the boulders and saw the corrie with the cliffs!

We walked towards the top but stopped for a break in a rock with all our sad faces because it was windy and cold :(

We finely got to the top and saw the plate but we could not see because it was cloudy. We saw the plate but couldn't see any of the mountains.
