Summary:
Start time: 0835. Fine early winter's day. Wet underfoot to begin with, some very boggy sections, but quickly freezing with height. Excellent visibility when clear, especially with views of the Grey Corries to the west. Brief snow showers blowing in then quickly blowing out again. Good length of walk for time of year. No encounters all day. Back at car: 15:15.
