Circuit from Moulin, via Meall an Daimh and Meall Breac. 15.4k. Light covering of snow. The sun came out and winds were light.NormanW09/01/2020
From tent 100 metres or so up the track by the memorial. Followed this for some way then lost it but found another path (this one not on the map) which took a higher, better line to east of Carn Geal(Ct) summit then directly up this on decent ground. All in cloud which continued along ridge to Meall Breac(Gt). Cloud cledared by now form pleasant and gentle crossing to Crungie Clach(Gt). Dropped west of south to cross stream and join forest edge, up firebreak and down forest track back to road.On drop down to stream came across a Red Deer skull with very impressive set of antlers still attached. Large but in poor condition, obviously a couple of years old at least.dickscroop19/05/2019

Parked by the memorial on the Pitlochry/Braemar road. Followed track and then sheep trails round Carn Dubh. Picked up a Land Rover track after crossing the wall. Ascended grassy slopes from the east to be met by gale force winds as I crossed to the summit. Fortunately visibility was still good but it closed in after leaving. Ascended Carn Dubh on the return.JohnW22/10/2018
