Left Edinburgh half 7,arrived at lay-by 87 for half 9 ish traffic not ideal.
Good squad today Kylie,Max,Gav,Rocco and Ire.
Took track up to quarry then took a Right for first of the day, went a wee bit wrong along the way whiteout conditions at points eventually found the fence posts and followed to summit after a diversion to a top!Sat on trig and feet touched the snow still deep up here,nice and crisp to walk on all day.
On to Carn an caim and stopped for a quick lunch stop was Baltic so did not linger!weather improved and got views from 2nd summit over to Ben alder looking sweet,paced it down snow falling and snow on track turning to slush made it interesting. Back at car back of 3 for the slog home down a9. Good day
