Walked with Lucy during our stay at Atholl palace. Set off up Glen Tilt with a little snow on the ground. We got diverted around the shooting range as shooting was taken place that day. As we started up the main climb of Carn A'Chlamain snow got deeper which wasn't a problem. The higher we got, the windier it got and snow was been blown up into our faces. Without goggles we couldn't see a thing and decided to turn back. Unfortunately no blue balloon but still an enjoyable walk. When I return to bag the munro I will probably take a bike up the track to save time.
