Hear we are back down this area to try and complete this set of 3 munros,and once again weather not to good,over cast and grey with rain on the way,but determind to finish what we started.
Left car park with Alan,Linda,and my 2 dogs,followed the landrover track and then got in a bit of a fankle trying to cross the burn that was in spate with all the rain that had fell,Alan the young pup got over easy the old man had 2 or 3 attempts before dipping my feet in the water to get over (whew) then Linda oh dear oh dear thought I was steky,always wondered what it looks like to be waist deep in freezing cold water,now I know,(not for me).
Pretty stiff climb with no views to speak of with low cloud most of the way,quick tap on the top and then a quick descent, some quicker than others,aint that right Alan,to busy trying to get a view and not watching your feet on the way down recipe for a trip or fall,20/30 feet I reckon,once I seen he was ok I wet myself,now in your club Linda hee hee.
Anyway job done finaly got this 3 hills ticked of. :D
