My first munro! What a great hobby. I am now hooked and looking forward to bagging some at Glen Clova and Glen Eask close to home. Loved the exercise, the views, the feeling of achievement and yapping with everyone on the way down. I resolve to always have an early start as it would be too disheartening to watch others coming down as I struggle up! The section will all the stairs was hard going but I loved the whole thing.

Speaking as a novice bagger the really steep bit (I hear all the expert baggers snigger at my naivety) with all the stone steps and stairs between about 500m and 800m got me puffing but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Hopefully by the time I'm forty (26th April 2016) I'll be a lot leaner and have bagged a lot more than one. Am deluding myself with a personal challenge that I can do them all by then, my naivety knows no bounds it seems. I also enjoyed the 'crack' and comraderie with other walkers - what a great hobby. I'm smitten!

I Climbed Schiehallion which I plan to revisit at sometime and it started hailing sideways and I remember some Australian children crying with the pain on their cheeks. I must admit it was pretty painful and I'm sure I returned with some glowing red cheeks myself.

It would have been nice to see some good views from the centre of the highlands but alas no. But even so it was a good day out and I love this hobby.
