Finally got back out into the hills with Coinneach bagging him his 5th Munro, Ben Chonzie. Just a repeat for me and Moss. We altered the return as the uphill was pretty boggy and I decided it might be a bit of hassle trying to descend that with Coinneach on the lead, so followed the fence line a bit further to a grassy track through the heather and from there across towards the prominent hilltop with the stone on on the top directly opposite the ascent path where we rejoined the track. Simple walk, we even beat our original time which is a first because so far everything has been slower! Not a single hare spotted up there, not even by Coinneach, in fact saw pretty much nothing other than meadow pipits. Maybe it was once a good spot for mountain hare, but I'm not sure it is any more.

The grassy track, the little hill in the centre of the photo is what we cut off to aim for as the track itself seemed to be going elsewhere.
