Nice wee short one. Parked at the car park across from the Oak Tree inn at Balmaha. The path has had a lot of work done on it since doing the WHW in 2011 and is in good condition. Set off from the car park along the WHW towards the summit with friend Katie and our 2 wolfies. Weather was mainly dry with the odd dizzley shower that did restrict the visibility a bit over the Loch.

The hill was very busy today with in excess of 100 people, the vast majority heading towards Balmaha so was good for a wee bit of socialisation for my dog.
