I also forgot to mention it was Honey the dug's 1st Munro. Here she is Striking the Obligatory Munro baggers
" Looking into into the distance thoughtfully" pose.
The descent followed the same route up and was just as surprising. Not a moan to be heard despite my constant checks. " No dad im not tired or sore or bored, my legs are fine......can i have a McDonalds on the way home for being a good girl?" Who was i to argue with that. So off we went for a well earned bite to eat before heading home. What can i say, a proud dad moment. For the record this wasnt some kind of punishment for Chloe. The little one has been at me for weeks to take her up the mountains after she pretty much ran up Dumyat, our local hill. Hopefully this will inspire more kids and parents alike to challenge there own ideas of whats possible.
Thanks for reading folks
Greg, Chloe and Honey.

This was my eldest's 2nd Munro at a similar age. We did this one from the Loch Turret side, see my report for our pictures. Nothing beats watching your children achieve what so many kids miss out out on. Hopefully, like my Chase, Chloe will be eager to get up another one soon. Be careful though, they can turn into mountain goat's pretty quickly.
Well done, and congratulations to you both (and Honey as well). A day to be remembered.
