My latest mountain adventure took me Lochnagar and we were doing five Munros Scottish highest mountains. It started off quite easily idyllic was gently uphill.

I got off the route to see the loch from a different angle.

There we are Lochnagar which means the loch of a little laughter.

The second summit if the day is a little bit less impressive, Carn a'Choire Bhoidheach which means the rocky hill of the beautiful corrie.

Time to set off towards another 3rd summit. It got a bit windy now.

There we are at the Carn an t-Sagairt Mor where we found the airplane wreckage from WWII pilots who crashed during their fast training.

I am walking in the wind towards my fourth summit now. I can see the end of the tunnel now.

Cairn Bannoch means the hill of the cake. It feels like I need one now.

Now I am heading towards my last Munro of the day Broad Cairn which I am sure its meaning is self-explanatory.
