I don't know if we turned up to the right too soon but it wasn't too steep from then it got a bit iffy, the very faint path kept disappearing, luckily there had been a bit of a frost which made the ground a little firmer although we both had our feet sink at some point! We knew where we were heading so battled on in the glorious sunshine and gentle breeze. It didn't take us too long to reach the ridge in which the view opened up, amazing views all round. As we started to walk along the ridge the wind was starting to pick up and it clouded over a bit although we could still see spells of sunshine in the distance. The walk to the summit is nice and easy but by the time we reached the cairn there was a freezing wind, as we stopped for some photos my dog started shivering badly even with her jumper on so I told my sister to start walking back with her and wait on my where the wind isn't as strong. Sadly this meant no photo of us on top our first munro but I rushed some photos of the views from the top. It was funny to see the little hill Meall Mor which I walked in April, it looked tiny from up here! To walk back was a little tricky as again the path kept disappearing but eventually we reached the bottom! Here is some photos from our adventure! Next munro....? I think Ben Chonzie from Glen Lednock looks a nice easy option!
Penny at almost 9years and 5 month completing her first munro!

Thanks Soapy, I have an older Nikon D40 with a 18-55 lens and a 55-200 lens. I also use a polarising filter when the sun is out
