Company - Anna and I

Accommodation - Jessie Macs Burnham/Dunkeld (Lovely, would defo stay again )

Started much later than planned . Left Lawers car park at 11 . Following the WH route.

First time at playing with the new toy, (Suunto Ambit 2) few teething problems but once i have mastered it's functions it will be a cracking piece of kit.

Overcast most of the day with some breaks. Scrammbly bit was a bit hairy as the rocks were very slippy. My bag went for a wee run down the hill without me which was interesting :roll:

Overall a great day . Anna's 2nd Munro and what a trooper , not a bother on her. :clap:

Hopefully i'll get her back out when the summer months come back in ( she is not keen on the snow , given her first Munro experience lol )
