Not many days when there is snow from the car park
First time out with the Glasgow Meetup group so quite apprehensive , but no need to be
It was a day when the conditions were perfect.and everything went superbly
Forecast said 10% chance of cloud free Munros and we were in that 10%

ssssshhhhhhh, Morag :D

The answer is no, but I just like some hills

Lochnagar didn't feel like the same hill this time

Maybe something to do with the the last time being August and conditions somewhat different

For example this time the crampons were stowed where the 2 litres of water were last time
