with Carn an Tuircdavidsbatty13/08/2016
Solo. From car parking area at NO147800 up path towards Carn an Tuirc. Near burn junction at N0158803 struck up hillside over short heather, grass and moss to reach summit of Carn Dubh. Cairn and knoll SW do appear to be of similar height. There is another cairn roughly SE from summit cairn, but this is lower. Continued to Carn an Tuirc, Cairn of Claise and Sròn na Gaoithe.pwbellarby14/10/2015
Straight up and down from A93 as a break in journey from Glasgow to Braemar. Many hares plus black grouse chicks.dickscroop17/06/2015
Cairn (NO 16186 81947, 820m). SW summit, green knoll (NO 16054 81798, 821m) appears very similar in height. RHW25/09/2011
