Having postponed this walk a fortnight ago due to the quantity of snow still around, Pedro27 and I set off to complete the 2 Munros.

The weather wasn't great and our visibility was pretty poor when we parked the car at Loch Earn and started walking at 0900. Thankfully the pea soup lifted a bit around lunch time!

A fair amount of stopping for snapshots and a nice extended lunch break sheltering behind a rock added considerably to our time.

As you'll see from the Garmin adventure, we didn't take the 'traditional' route but decided to try an alternative.

A really good day.

Great stuff DJ - not familiar with garmin adventure, but quite enjoyed finding out. Good report with a lot of Gore-tex in the pics :) and interesting deviations from the normal route.
