I have to apologize to start off with as I have no photos as I think I have left my camera at work, but I plan to get back up there as its on my door step almost.

Left Inverness early on but once I got in car park I saw some folk already making their way back.
It was very dry under foot and not much mud about
Lovely day for it bright and sunny but very windy up top just prior to the cairns I found a good few folk already there discussing if to carry on further.
I left my pack in the shelter of the first cairn and made my way to the summit and did not hang about as it was rather wild at times but in between the clouds I got a couple of glimpse of the views.
It was a bit chilly and windy so I quickly made my way to collect my pack and made my way part of the way back down to have a quick feed and a brew.
I made slow progress on the way down as it was such a lovely day I wanted to take full advantage of it.
One down 282 to go!

Its not 282 to go its 1 under the belt. The rest are easy (probably!).
Did you take your dugs with you. Post some pics of them next time out. I have black, yellow and choc labs ( and weimeraner and daschund). All baggers, except the daschund - that would be ridiculous. Best of weather and luck for the other 282.

Thanks you are right lol
I took both the dogs with me and it was all ok until we got to the first cairn and as I said it was blowing a bit but the dogs managed it no trouble at all as I did once I ditched my pack.
Im hoping I left my cam at work if not its gone missing :(
I shall sort out some pics of them next time out which I hope to bag one more before returning to work
