The wife and I had a walk up Mount Keen last Saturday. The forecast was a bit iffy but it turned out to be a smashing day. The top was a bit blowy though! Really enjoyed this walk with some fantastc views. Ah well, 3 down 280 to go! :shock:

Lovely atmospheric view down Glen Mark there. I was up there on the same day but from Glen Tanar & was up there for the crack of dawn. Had I bit more cloud than yourselves and was wondering if you could see the sea from the summit?

Hi Alastair. I don't think you can see the sea or it would probably be visible on the photo looking east from the top.
