Four of us headed up from Glasgow and started at Loch Moraig parking point. Great weather meant we had a chance to see the great views on the lower reaches of this walk. However, higher up there was a lot of fog and not much to see. The 3rd Monroe was a hard slog in the hard packed snow and long rocky walk to the summit. The walk off was substantial and makes this a long day. The day proved costly as I lost my Garmin GPSMAPS 64s when getting changed at the car park by Loch Moraig
