Enjoyed completing our first two Munros on Monday. Thanks to Walkhighlands for an excellent route description and map. My companion and I will need to learn the art of navigation before tackling other mountains !
A while ago I had been given a book, The Munros by Cameron McNeish in which the author confesses that "the Lawers group is not his favourite hills". I must disagree with his viewpoint since we had a great day out from Edinburgh to the Lawers group.

Well done with your first two munros, get out there whenever you can and enjoy the mountain fun! Great point on building your navigation skills, but that will sharpen up the more you do....practice and keep safe :D :D :clap:

ps...loads of great resources out there, including on walkhighlands, mcofs and also learn from others at all opportunities.
