climbed goatfell early may, we left from corrie which is a lot steeper climb than from broddick. the weather was realy good and the climb was quite hard goin since as you got higher up the snow was lying thick on the ground.this was my first mountain and the views from the top are amazing and makes it all worth it. came back down to broddick which was easier going but gets you to the pub quicker which is always a good thing. i will do it again it might not be a munro but its a good day out and i would definately recommend it.
