Bad enough being stuck behind a car!
Steephill - glad it didn't put you off
Ben More is tricky at the top even in summer if visibility's down. There's been a few casualties there. The cross on Ben Ledi is a memorial to a member of Killin mountain rescue (Harry Lawrie) who was killed on a rescue on Ben More in 1987. It was the 30th anniversary in February. It was pretty horrific.
Easy to get that feeling of security after putting the hardware away on reaching the 'safer' bits, isn't it. I'm usually ok on trickier sections, and it's when I'm on an ordinary bit of path- usually nearly back at the car - when I go over!
I stick to familiar hills or the lower ones in winter generally, although this time of year can be just as wintery.
