We did it! Although didn't take on the summit as it snowed last night so was far to dangerous with 2 kids both of who were struggling with the conditions, they were both very brave though considering the temperature was only 2.5c when we left the car. A very steep climb up the south face rewarded with an amazing view of silvery lochs and snow capped mountains. The path down the north face made for an easier decent and we eventually made it back to the car safe and sound. What will be the next challenge for clan Beardsley?
