My first Munro for many years.

Found the car park no problem, loaded up all the newly prepared gear into the rucky and set off with companion.

Found the walk exceptionally easy up to the point of the boulder field, and then struggled slightly with the twists and jerks on a previously broken ankle, and found myself quite tentative over this area. Probably a lot slower going (well, compared to other travellers I was) than many others around.

Got to the top and was fortunate to have spectacular views in which to enjoy my sandwich. Learnt at this stage that for all future walks a nice cuppa coffee at this point would be very welcome!!

Descent no problems, started to feel the tug on my calves - remember this was first Munro! but quickly got over it.

Enjoyed it so much that at the time of typing I've done a mountain a week ever since!!
