Ross , Oscar and I

Set off from Kirkcaldy around 9am , were walking just before 11 in the pub by 4;20 :clap:

Absolutely cracking day on the hills you could not have had better weather conditions. Crisp snow at the top with blue skies and very little wind.

Bit icy near the top but not to bad , stuck the water proofs on and had a wee skyte on the way down :lol:

Very gradual ascent nice hill to do in the winter.

Took us 5hrs 18mins including lunch a wee break on the way daown to take in the last of the beautiful views.
