The lovely Ben Wyvis.
This was the first ascent, also done in Winter which was more interesting especially along the plateau.
Ben Wyvis is just a big beasty hill and quite a trudge to get up and down. Not rushing to do this one again....
Path is followed from Garbat through the forest and up the open hill side to pick up the zig zag stalkers path between Carn Gorm and Tom a'choinnich.
Cross the main plateau to main summit and continue to An Cabar. Steep descent down, very muddy and eroded at the time.
Path then followed down through the forest to the road a short way from the car park.
