Lots of people doing the walk today and had to park along the road a bit from the farm house. The long walk up the four wheel drive track really isn't too bad as it meanders up the valley with the view behind being quite generous. At least it's dry!

Halfway up and a great view back

Finally off the track and along the ridge line - the cloud just managing to keep above our heads. But the summit looks like it might blow me away (literally)

That's the summit and it's looking ominous!

Nice walk up the ridge line and after the right hand turn out to the summit the wind picked up and it suddenly felt like the end of summer.

View back down the ridgeline

2 hours 5min to the top. Didn't hang about at the top again, though it was biting cold

Made it! Great views all around including over Loch Turret

Nice quick walk on the way back down and finishing in 3 hr 30min
