After completing Meall Corranaich and Meall a'Choire Leith in the morning. I climbed Ben chonzie in the afternoon. After getting to the summit I walked back to to the corner of the fence posts and sat and watched the sun set. As I walked back down the track the sunset and colours got better and better. Completely dark by the time I got back to the car but managed it with out needing my head torch. This walk started as a walk which was purely to tick off another Munro. It ended up being one of my favourite ever, sitting in the snow watching the sun go down was incredible and the colours in the sky of the sunset were breathtaking, which my photos will never do justice to.
