Left at quarter to 9 and followed a good track along by the aqueduct, past the substation and along to the bothy. Over a wee bridge to a small cairn and started to head up. Ground was mainly frozen underneath which was a bonus as it would have been quite boggy otherwise.
After a brief chat near the summit with a member of the estate and a " gent " photographing two ptarmigan( with the biggest camera going), it was on to the summit and cairn.
I reckon I had better pics of three of them further up on my wee android :D

Great views all round today and no rush so a chance to admire the views and have a coffee and bite to eat.
What a difference it makes when there's no rain or wind and you're not fighting against the hours of daylight

Great day out- and to the lad i met who was on 93 today :wink:
Hope your bike was there waiting for your returm
Took the scenic route on the way back.
Some people like going for a meal or to the pub when they've finished a walk but I like to visit distilleries or historic sites. I paid the Dewars distillery in Aberfeldy a visit.

Cap doffed to Meall Chuaitch.
Cheers
