Monday jaunt up An Caisteal.
Left car park at dawn, very icy.
Approaching the castle just before the summit, I decided to leave the path and go round the grassy slope on the right hand side, the rocky section looked very icy and slippy.
Went over the summit and down the path towards Beinn a'Chroin.
This also looked very slippy, so I went back up to An Caisteal top and sat and enjoyed the views for a while.
Descended the same way.
Cracking weather and a good walk.
