As a Swede, I don't get a lot of chances to climb a munro, and this was only my second after climbing Cairn Gorm in 2010.
This walk was even easier, and unexpectedly the weather turned from rain to almost sunny overnight, so it was a very pleasant walk. Quite easy, and beautiful views from the summit.

Nice and balmy

However, the high point of the walk was to cool off in Loch an Daimh after the descent, the water was a balmy 14 degrees, at least!

Nope, the 3rd and 4th (Beinn Ghlas and Ben Lawer) came just one day after the second!
I have plans for more now, staying in Glen Lyon for another week, a lot of them around :)
