Route: Ben Chonzie via Glen Lednock

Munros: Ben Chonzie

Date walked: 23/02/2019

Time taken: 4 hours

Distance: 13km

Ascent: 704m

A slightly later then planned departure from Edinburgh, combined with some weird road diversions, meant that we didn't start walking until after 10.30am.
The parking at the beginning of the walk was super busy with quite a few large groups of walkers. We gave the bulk of walkers some space so as not to be on the heels of the group all the way up.
The path was easy to follow and the weather was mild, if a little hazy.
This walk is basically a straightforward climb up to the shelter cairn at the top.
We enjoyed the views on the way up but as we neared the summit there was a bit of a change in the weather and we were grateful for the shelter at the top while we enjoyed lunch.

After eating the weather had deteriorated slightly and our descent was in constant drizzle and slight wind.
All in all an enjoyable and easy day on the hill though.
