So after a rather lengthy break from the hills, I have gotten back into it :) My aim when I started hillwalking was to make it to the summit of Ben Nevis... the great news is that I'll be attempting it next month :)

Anyway, I figured a nice Corbett was the way back into it, so myself and my partner headed towards it and braced ourselves for the challenge ahead.

Sadly, the photo's don't do the fantastic walk justice. My camera is a little broken but I did my best with what I had. I'll be sure to get a new one before heading up the big one!

Was such a good day today, I was surprised at the steepness of the climb at cetain points, but was fantastic. Only came across one other person on the walk so a very quiet day. Defintely recommend this walk to anyone of any level :) There are several ways to head back down, but we went down the exact same way.

Attached some photos of the day. They are in order but some were taken on the way back down. Sorry again for the quality.
