The weather today was just superb, albeit very cold. At 08:00 the temperature was -16C. By 12:30, the temperature had risen to a sweltering -13C. I parked beside the sign, "Keeper's Cottage Fergus", near Delnamer, where there is room for a couple of cars. I followed the track, over the River Isla and onto Fergus.

After crossing the Fergus burn via a small bridge, I skirted the small wood to gain the open hillside.

View North towards Monega hill and Canness glen:

During the ascent I spotted a large herd of deer (Possibly the same large herd that I got very close to on neighbouring Duchray Hill back in August).

The ascent of the hill was quite tiring as I had to break trail the whole way. It was just a case of head up and try to avoid the thigh deep drifts.

The views from the summit were fantastic but it was a bit too cold to hang around for long.
