Having not done much exercise, never mind any munros for 7 months, this was always going to be a challenge! But it was actually a fine winters days, calm conditions, and despite stopping plenty due to lack of fitness, it was a brilliant walk!

Was thinking of Ben Chonzie tomorrow, how was the snow/ice towards the summit?

Sorry Craig - just seen this!

It was pretty snowy, but not deep and I didn't feel the need to put on the crampons as it's a fairly gentle hike to the summit!
