|No snow on hill, despite some good sking on neighbouring hills. Went up south slope. Quite windy at summit. The only snow crossed was a bridge which collapesed with my weight making for damp legs. Yetis saved the day. The rocky cairn i believe is the summit but in poor visiblity the whole area is of approx same height and is very flat.||cjo||08/03/2020|

|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.||pwbellarby||14/10/2015|
