Pleasant morning to start the walk, youngest lad came with us for his first hill walk. A good straightforward walk and climb but long enough to be a challenge for a first climb.
Bit of rain on ascent but stayed mainly dry, bit misty at top but could see the glens either side of the mountain. Good walk back down, passed many on their way up. Son did well, and we made excellent time without rushing.
