Woke up at 02:00am as my target required start in the darkness to cover the distance in the tough terrain and winter conditions to do 2 Munros and one Corbett and finish before darkness...
Very freezy morning, minus 10 at the start point, one of the reasons why to do these three because of the boggy terrain there. No much snow, but the frost added the beauty instead, wide views far away, cold, but clear day and the colours just perfect when started sunrise and then the sunset at the end !
:D 8) :wink:

.......and nobody else seen there for all day, not even on the part of the road :o :lol: :lol:
