The car park had a few cars in it when I left, a couple of people ahead of me. Good walking all the way to the well and the climb up was on pretty rough track with lots of scree on it. Once up top, the track is much better and then the final path up to the top is well made and easy on the feet. Pretty windy up top, wind chill was fantastic. Had lunch at the top and then headed straight back down. The sun was out all the way back, so warmed up a bit till got off the ridge. Once back in the glen, off with the jacket and walk back with a warm wind at my back. Glad to be back at the car, with a big blister on my heal. It is a straight forward walk and took less time than I thought.
