This is a view I’ve wanted to experience for many years now. I first saw a picture from here on Facebook 7 or 8 years ago and set about finding the location. Since that time, every visit to the glen has been associated with at least one reason why I couldn’t make a visit to the viewpoint work. Finally in January this year I managed to bring all the necessary parts (including most importantly the weather) together and made the ascent early one morning with Garry Smith and Richard Hunter.
