Walked this hill via the tourist route. This was my first Munro and i thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Did this walk in the company of my daughter Jade and two workmates Alan and Lex. Hoping to do ben lawers at the end of the month. Also thinking of doing the Corbett Merrick Hill in between. Some random photos. :D

Cheers Polly. I'm amazed the amount of people who have done this walk and never got a view!
