Why: Winter wonderland, stunning day
Where: From Kirkton farm
Whither: Over railway but bear left slightly following burn, avoids incredibly boggy section to the right. Bear right back on course when at top of first hill. You probably pick up a path from Auchtertyre farm. Difficult to tell as there was so much snow. Its a longer route, but worth it. Slightly dodgy ledge coming off the south top in the snow. Ice axe at the ready!
With: Self. Loads of folks coming up as I was returning.
Wildlife: None at all save a couple of ravens hanging about the tops.
