The recent weather has been fantastic so what better way to spend it but to hop around some Munros that Perthshire has to offer.

Getting to the car park was an experience in itself. Our driver (who hasn't been with us before) drove us in his Porsche. This made the trip to the car park much quicker than the 1 hour 40 mins the sat nav told us. It was a great way to get the heart started before the walk.

As the description says this is rather easy to navigate. Obvious tracks all the way with fence posts to help. The weather was fantastic which makes the day even better. Toughest bit of the day was the last descent but that's because my knees just cant quite hack it for some reason!
