Left Perth at 7.30 for an easy drive up to find a few cars already parked up.

Nice view on way to car park

View from the bridge

Followed the instructions carefully crossing the bridges and the fence to follow the river on what would have been a very muddy path but it was frozen and slippy in places.

Went through a big gap in the fence then on up to the style, which is broken so carefully does it over the fence.

The path after the broken stile

Muddy but frozen path

Three shadows

Tumbling waters

Veered up the next river and crossed it just before the 500M contour mark. After this the path wasn't so obvious and kept disappearing under patches of snow. Eventually picked it up again and slogged up the steeper part. No need for the ironmongery though, the snow was firm but confined to the higher, less steep parts.

Crossing point just shy of 500M contour

Views opening up

This was the most glorious of days, with hardly any wind until we got to the cairn. Sat for about 15 mins scoffing our piece before getting on some more layers and heading off from whenst we came.

Plodding up the snow

At the top

Easy plod back and did it all in 4.5 hours including stops and lunch. A splendidly easy first one of the year rounded off with a cuppa and a cake at the Laggan cafe. Even bought some of their gin after the very hospitable host gave us a wee nip to taste.
