A braw wee day for my 6th Munro.
Set off at 8;45 am with Dave (pigeon) Jim and his daughter Erin .
Brisk pace was et by Erin , jim and then Dave keeping me in line.!!
Was absolute puggled when i reached the boulder field...its a nightmare as many of you will know by now.
It actually helped my tired legs !!!!
Spectacular views when reaching the top...the weather was the best ever and the views ill say it again...SPECTACULAR!!!
Some soup, pics and bagged munro #6

Hi there
Nice to meet you on Saturday.
I do believe that I took that final pic of you all. Turned out OK!
It was just the most glorious day to be on the hills wasn't it?
Did you meet the group with the inflatable salamander?
Cheers

Hoping to head for the Tarmachan Ridge this weekend - doing the easier / closer ones first. Will depend on the weather though. Unlikely to beat last weekend for blue skies & sunshine.
I'm almost enjoying the early morning starts!
Hope you enjoy your next one too.
