Conditions: dry, sunny, warm, no cloud, very slight wind very occasionally, prefect hill walking conditions
Notes: got the gondola up to reduce ascent which was very fun but very expensive (£12 each). From here we took the wrong path to begin with but quickly corrected this. first ascent began with a good path/track to follow but lost path when became stony however summit was pretty obvious so worked our way up. Much longer then initally thought with a couple of false summits. From first munro summit, the second ascent looked very forboding and steep. From here there was a simple wide descent and ridge walk to second ascent. This ascent turned out to be very simple and straightforward with very minimal scrambling and hands on and not exposed at all. Once on top very easy walk to top of the second munro. Then came the race back down as the last gondola down left at 16.30. We retraced our steps back to the start which was very straight forward and easy although the first munro was very stoney on top so slightly harder going. We did find a better path on the way back down. Finally made it in time for the gondola with 30 mins to spare! We also saw 2 stags at the top of the gondola.
Enjoyability: 7/10
hardness: 4/10
