my first ever post here after 25 years on the munro trail so hi to all,
finally got to do carn an righ after being forced down off glas tulaichean in a blizzard several winters ago.

weather looked good so travelled up from preston thursday night after work on a 3 day trip, so stocked up at tesco lesmahagow - how i miss the old europa truck stop tho :thumbdown: arrived 12 pm and slept in car at spittall of glenshee nice 5 hour drive !

woke to fog filled glen and sharp frost - so on with the gear - breakfast and away we go up glen taitneach - followed glen all the way up to lip of the lochan which was a tad frozen - sun made an appearance however
