My first walk report, be gentle ;-)

After completing my first 2 hills in 30 years on Saturday (Ben Ledi) & Sunday (Ben Venue), i thought i might as well have a go at bagging a few munros.

I therefore decided to try a simple Lawers 3 of Beinn Ghlas, Ben Lawers & Meall Corranaich.

Weather forecast was reasonable 10C ,10-15mph winds at Monro height & 10% chance of rain..

Start 0800
Beinn Ghlas 0923
Ben Lawers 1000
Meall Corranaich 1115
end 1220

Did these just as you say, then when i got to the carpark i decided to go up meall nan tarmachan. Wish I'd gone onto meall a'choire leith rather than coming down after corranaich
Hey how the mountain aint going nowhere. I'll go back.
