Mwis not correct 90% clear munros NA 100% clear braw . Four of us today me the dog Steve Neill and Kev we met at the car park at the finnishing point at 0730 start point full . Walked to the start and was off by 0807 hrs . There is not a lot to be said about this Big lump which hasnt been said before . No need for map reading on this perfect day not a cloud in the sky and a good path to follow . We made Stob D at 1030 hrs stopped for a brew enjoyed the views then on to Stob Na Broige . Getting over Stob na Doire was a b*** breaker after 3 weeks in Texas drinking beer and mexican food was certainly taking its toll with Kev Stevie and Neil showing me a clean pair of heals with a few breaks in between we got to Stob na Broige at 1300hrs . Well done to Neil breaking double figures on his munro count especially with his carpet layer knees the only down side to the day was the icy wind .
All what was left to do was to make our way down to the beallach and the scramble down the hill to the lairig gartain and picked up one of the best paths Ive been on got back to the carpark at 1530 hrs .
Perfect weather Good hill Great company and a perfect end Kev supplied 4 tins of Americas finest
