I wasn't going to bother with an open walk report for this traipse up my local hill but I did a new route and was so enamoured with it I thought I'd share it for others to use. Also, it was a glorious day and I ate my lunch at the top whilst sunbathing - in November.
Here are the photos.
Milton Loch with Beinn a'Chlachain behind. I took an anti-clockwise route and visited the lower top (to the right here) first.
