Walked with Will, Jen, Brad and Christine.

Will drove us all in the truck after meeting at Stonehaven. Difficult to find the layby in the snow but eventually found it.

Weather was clear blue skies with thin snow on the ground but very cold.

Walked under the railway bridge and across all the frozen rivers (Will trod on a frozen dead ram).

Turned off the path and headed up the hill with great viewed of Loch Lyon. Couple of other small groups on the hill.

Wind chill was baltic when we reached the summit so didn't hang around and dot back to the car in twilight.

Had dinner at the Capercaillie in Killin then headed home.
