One of the most straightforward munros with cracking views.

Will make a great introductory munro for someone new / new-ish to munro walking.

Bonus: toilets at the carpark!

There are enough false summits to keep you going, but not as many as Ben Vane's to deflate your spirits!

Please take these stats with a pinch of salt. First reason being I had descended about 200m to reconvene with my friend before ascending again to reach the summit. Secondly, it's not a true reflection of our walk as I've forgotten to turn it on at the start as I have been so inclined to doing so many times now.... But what I have says, distance 10.7km, ascent 1287m, and time 4h 13mins.

Anyhow, this is by far my favourite kind of social distancing activity #coronavirus :wink:
