It was a late night (work) so a late start. Actually glad today because if I'd reached the summit earlier than I did I would have had no views.
Car was parked at Braes of Foss. £2 for a ticket and off I went at 0930.
Seemed as though I was here before the crowds.
One group of 6 and a couple set off just before me; passed them and then I saw one other couple before the summit. Ex Navy lad who served in the Falklands in 82 -all the best to yourself and good lady wherever you walk.

Bit of mist on the summit but that cleared soon enough to give great views all round. Lawers and glen lyon, Rannoch and tummel lochs gave good views.
There were only 4 of us here on the summit by now and one said there was a good stream heading up. That was my q to head back down.

By the amount I passed on the way down, I thought, jeezo that'd summits gonna be crowdy.

Walked a bit of the way down chatting to a German lad who was on his way north for a few climbs/ walks this week. All the best.

Coffee and a roll then the drive back towards killin and Crianlarich.
Good day and glad I saved this one till no.50

Cap doffed to Schiehallion

Wildllife watch - a field of pheasant near aberfeldy en route (missed the turning at fearnan going up and went too far!!!)
And 2 grouse near the summit
