A walk over 3 Munros from Lundie, this the first top. By the usual route, made tough by strong SW winds, snow showers. Even the burn crossing at the start took a while. The tops were all clear, though, and the atmosphere on these relatively easy Munros was tremendous. With brother, Pete.pwheeler22/05/1999
