The weather was super, clear spells with sleet and rain blowing through, esp up top. Breezy enough to keep you feeling fresh and cooler.

The route was simples, from the car park head to the Loch and cross the bridge to the boat hut. Continue heading to the small plantation then the track is easy to follow and its straight up to Loch Nagar. Once up high you can take in another 3 monros and finish up on the Broad Cairn. Super views and a nice walk/run back to the car park.
