Pretty simple walk this one! Parked in the layby next to the Perth/Angus sign and walked along the road to the gate, through the gate and then it was up up up first through a field of sheep with lambs and then following a track through low heather. The mast at the summit appeared quite suddenly and it was a surprise how close it was. Returned the same way. The views are pretty good from the summit could see right across to Ben Nevis and co. I was wondering what the big pointy Munro was on the way up and it turned out it was Schiehallion so but of a F grade for me not recognising that one :lol:

Summit roll, it is a tradition and has to be done on every summit though not sure what the psychotic face is for!
