Arrived Friday night and pitched near carpark, BIG MISTAKE as in morning we were all attacked by Midge (Millions of them. One of my mates was covered in them (he had black clothes on so the midge were easy to see).This was my daughter's 2nd time out and her 2nd Munro. We headed off early and took our time and had a few breaks on our way as we wanted to take some photos. We went up Meikle Pap and along the tops of Lochnagar's corries (some nice veiws), the weather was ok although cloudy and really windy on Cac Carn Beag. After reaching the summit we headed back down via Loch Muick route which has some very dramatic views on the way down. All in all a good day out.
