Last weekend I climbed Ben Chonzie with a work colleague. It was a the first proper winter hillwalk of this year, with ice on the route and a good covering of snow on the broad summit ridge above about 800m. We saw plenty of all-white mountain hares, they are very widespread in this area.
Ben Chonzie is the nearest Munro summit to where I live and is probably one of the most straightforward to ascend, making it a good hill for winter practice trips.
We were quite fortunate to get a clear spell in the weather while we were walking on the summit, and there were fantastic views to the nearby Ben Lawers range. We also saw a fogbow on the summit as the sun shone on some some small mist patches nearby.
You can see all the photos from the trip on my website here.
