we didnt see much of a track so we headed straight up, there was a stiff wind blowing bringing with it rain and hail,
we had checked the forecast before hand and it was spot on,(no such thing as bad weather just the rong clothes)
it also got a bit boggy in places, after about 600 or 700 mtrs we saw a distinct track and followed this the rest of the
way ahead.

no real scrambling on this route bit a good climb to the summit ridge which in the wind was interesting,

found some shelter on the way back down had a wee piece and a cuppy coffee another great day out.
