This was just a quicky. We set off very late - about 12.am and we took the easier, steadier route that most people do. We got to the top after about 2,5 hours and returned by the same route (instead the one, that is suggested in the walkinghlands). I tried to take some pictures, but to be honest the weather wasn't too good for that. Anyway, my first Munro, so I'm quite happy with that, and hopefully it's not the last one ;)

And just a couple of pictures...

Nice pics - you look to have had nice weather. A lot of my walks look the same in the Munros - just grey and swirly! :lol:
