My first expedition to the Lawers range, and decided to go for the big one first. Fairly easy ascent on great dry path up one of the most popular munros (so no need for a forum post really). Weather was good and hill consequently very busy. Did a pretty quick time as 1) had dog with me, who was champing at the bit and 2) didn't stop for much time as had had lunch before. Looking forward to do more in this area. Must make a mental note not to drive home from here at rush hour on weekdays again, as took me 3 hours to get home after crawling along the A84!
