After a walk with the girls near Killin I went for an early evening stroll to bag Schiehallion. The weather was fantastic being bright,clear and warm.I took my little Terrier with me and with it being his first major summit he was in heaven.
The route up has a well trodden and excellent path getting very boulder y near the summit.
I managed to summit and get back to the car before darkness fell .
I enjoyed this Munro as it is not an epic day and can be done either morning or afternoon in conjunction with other walks.
