We had a fog on the way up but it made the view amazing. From time to time the wind blew the fog away and the lake appeared on the horizon. Enjoyed it!

Am Binnean (the Pinnacle or Peak) as it was originally known is one of the most rewarding climbs in Scotland. Although only 1500ft high the views from the top especially on a clear day are magnificent

I did this walk in the summer and as an inexperienced aged walker it was a real challenge.I certainly would not consider it in wintry conditions.
