1st ever Munro.
Was told by various collegues that this would be a good one to start with.
I was blowing out my botty early doors, but soon got my 2nd wind and started to enjoy.
About 1/2hr from the summit i hit that mental wall where you feel like giving up, but being the stubborn person i am i kept going and boy i was glad i did. The weather was very clear and sunny albeit very windy at the top so the views were absolutely brilliant. Met someone i used to work with 9 year ago as i started my decent (small world).
Took my Chocolate Lab dog with me and she seemed to enjoy.
