A bit of snow on the ground and bitterly cold at the summit. But was well prepared and it was possibly my favourite walk of the year.

A great way to round off the year which has seen me well and truly get the bug for the hills and now winter walking too. Got myself booked on a winter skills course in January. Aim for next year is to keep enjoying the hills and be on 60 Munros in a years time. (38 in 2016)
