First Munro

Route: Mount Keen from Glen Esk

Munros: Mount Keen

Date walked: 25/09/2021

Time taken: 4 hours

Distance: 17.5km

Ascent: 810m

Bagged my first Munro yesterday!! Ok

😬 It was such a rewarding experience, I didn’t think I’d make it to the summit, the rucksack was too heavy and no training done prior so it really pushed me to my limits but when you have an end goal and you have a husband that motivates you, you’ll keep pushing!! 😍

We got up at 3:30am, started our walk from 8am and completed it just under 5 hours. Recommend going for an early start, it gets really busy and you don’t want to rush either! Superb weather, wonderful positive atmosphere and the views were spectacular. 🙏🏻
