This was my first Munro in the winter. I thought still being very much an amateur this would be an easy one to conquer and improve my navigation skills.
Anyway we managed to get lost/confused as to which hill we were aiming for. After a slight detour things started to become clear and we made a b-line for the summit.
The information given about the summit is that there are great views at the top. Sadly this wasn't our day when we got there as there was nothing but grey cloud all around. However, not long after descent visibility improved and we got s cracking sight all the way back.
All in all a great day was had. I managed to learn from some mistakes and improve my map/compass skills. Got some experience walking in the winter and got a great start to the years bagging!
