Car park and path well marked, weather was great dry with lots of sunshine, although a very cold wind near the top. There was a good covering of snow and ice nearer the top ideal for trying out my new crampons. Also had time to practice with the ice axe, just hope I never have to use it for real. Views from the top were great down the firth of Clyde towards Aran to the west you can see the Paps of Jura. Got back to the car for 1pm all in all a good walk on a cracking day.
