This was my first time back on the hills post COVID19 lockdown, so hill-fitness was just not there. The walk to the first summit was pleasant enough, but lack of fitness was really apparent on some of the steeper downhill sections.

Mind you, we only got rained on once for about 10 mins, and while the rain never seemed too far away, the sky also broke up to give some great views over to Glen Coe in the West, the Lawers group to our south and Schiehallion just to our North East. It was fascinating to what how the pink granite of Schiehallion changed colour depending on the colour of the clouds rolling over it.

Great to be back out on the hills.
