Started at 1030.
Sunny day to begin with.
By the time we reached the hut, about 230 m below the ridge, it was blowing a gale.
Saw a few deers on the slopes.
The final 200 m climb was steep and hard, across a snowfield and boggy terrain.
Made it to the summit but no views at all due to cloud cover.
Made it back to the car at 1630.
Glen Lyon gala was on and saw a Clydsdale horse with a girl on top with painted face-ladybird pattern
Saw the Yew tree.
Had chips with curry sauce at Smifys in Aviemore.
