Finally we were able to take on our first Munro; An Stuc. It feels like it's been a long wait!
The weather was a bit changeable throughout the day, but never threatened to derail our plans. A reasonably gentle first half of the walk to the summit led us to Lachan nan Cat where we stopped for lunch. Things got distinctly more difficult from then on. A very steep and slippery ascent to the main ridge was testing to say the least! Once on the ridge the final ascent to the summit was fairly straightforward. As luck would have it, the clouds cleared and the wind dropped just as we reached the summit to give us some amazing views of the Lawers Range and beyond. We made good progress on the return journey, despite the same steep section seeming even worse on the way down!
All in all a great day out, and an amazing feeling to have ticked off the first of The Final 15!
