Thanks jmarkb, it's amazing that if your not actually looking for litter you will not see it! In all honesty the track was not that bad, I thought, but it was on the summit where people actually hide rubbish that's very dissapointing, so they must know its wrong to do so. We were very lucky with the weather but no doubt some tissues would have been missed with the little snow on the summit.

Hi Jabber, I don't believe that mess is left by 'Hill folk' if you know what I mean. I think there were twelve of us in total, so thanks to ALL of them also. Clean for a wee while now!

Drives me nuts seeing the amount of litter on some of our hills. Why people can't put their rubbish in their pockets for a couple of hours beats me
