This was a great day on perhaps not the most spectacular hills but we had good banter ,great weather and superb views.This walk is great for winter as it is pretty easy going ,the start is at about 400 metres and there are no really steep climbs to contend with ,might be tricky route finding in misty conditions though :thumbup:

Great pics there, wish I'd got a day like that, had a nightmare on Beinn Ime in mist. Made it home in one piece tho, so no harm done, other than my pride :lol:
