Route: Meall Chuaich, Drumochter

Munros: Meall Chuaich

Date walked: 12/12/2012

Time taken: 4.5 hours

Distance: 14km

Ascent: 614m

The weather was too good not to get out on the hills so due to my poor navigational skills i picked a mountain that my friend had recommended as he said it would be impossible to get lost! Well i managed to prove him wrong :lol: after working my way along the track that was more like an ice rink i started my ascent, thankfully it was very frosty so no boggy bits for me! somehow half way up i managed to lose the path (this happens alot with me) however after trudging through the snow i finally stumbled across the path....quite literally! the weather was perfect and the views were stunning and made my way to the cairn with no major difficulties. However walking towards the cairn i was greeted by a man wielding a shotgun :o which was somewhat unsettling to say the least but he was nice enough to take a pic of me so all was forgiven for scaring the hell out of me. i started my descent, this time sticking to the path! The sound of gunshots made my descent a quick one!!!
