That was a bit too much for her, better in the summertime. We're from Hungary and we don't have so much mountain at home. The highland is just amazing for us.

Nice photo's - it's a lovely little mountain, isn't it? One of my favourite Munro's so far. I love the views from up there, over to Ben Lomond, with 3 lochs in view (Lomond, Arklet and Katrine). So close to Glasgow yet so far...
