Climbed Ben Vrackie today, it was a great climb, unfortunately the mist was really thick and there was no view at the top. It was still a great feeling.

Climbed this one a few years back...and the overriding memory is that it was a tough one for a Corbett! Think that we had gotten a little cocky but the mountain soon put us back in our place :lol:

Congratulations! Some Corbetts are every bit as tough or tougher than many Munros and have fewer paths etc. Great job - hope it has given you the 'bug'!
