First tick of the year. Not been out and about much over the past months due to my partners Knee injury. I was intending to do a couple of Munro's, I'm a bit rusty in winter conditions and hadn't brought my full winter kit so when I read about the conditions on the hills I changed my mind and found this little beauty just a few miles from where we were staying at the mother in laws, So I left the pair of them shopping and off I went. Turned out to be a great walk on a lovely cold and frosty morning. It's not the exact route documented on here I found a loop to avoid coming back the same way I went up. It did involve scrambling through the trees at one point and some very boggy ground nothing too dangerous though,

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
