A' mach air Disathairne ann Siorrachd Peairt ... A grand day out in Perthshire on Saturday ,cold ,frosty ,a few snow showers and a snow line
...and sun eventually
Bha an gaoith laidir agus gle fhuar ... the wind on the plateau was stiff and very cold though we soon reached the cairn
Sealltainn math gu dearbh .... great views indeed
S'tuil leam Siorrachd Peairt agus Braigh Albainn ... I ve always had great days out in Perthshire and a favourite haunt for me , Beinn a Choinich was just grand.
No boring hills here in the Gaidhealtachd

In those conditions I did not need either however I had them with me ,always best to take both in Winter as the ground changes very quickly and a wee skite can end in disaster

Really gorgeous with a layer of snow on it and some fabulous views.
Definitely not a boring hill, especially when you follow the fenceline back and don't realise you're following the wrong one until 10 minutes later! That gave me a wee fright that day!!!
