Long walk on a good day. Just under 20 miles from the old Bridge of tilt car park. Good path almost the entire way. Slight boggy patch before the summit. The path is very exposed after leaving the forest and in poor weather would be a real challenge.Stevend113/08/2016
Walked to after Beinn Mheadonach via Elrig 'ic an Toisich. A tough walk over peat hags and bogs to start but the ascent to the left of the rocks, was not too bad before an easy stroll up to the summit over boulder fields. A very long out back to Bridge of Tilt.Chris Mac27/07/2016
