|Solo. From car park at Keiloch. On track towards Invercauld House and then northwards on track that is right of way to Tomintoul. Soon after leaving forest went up hillside to summit of Creag a' Chait. Stood on top of boulder at summit, rather precariously as it was rather windy. This is to the west of the stone wall that passes over the summit area. dickscroop talks of other claimants for the highest point. Only other point in my observation that might be as high is a point much nearer the wall, where there is a flat rock. Donít think it's higher, though. Continued to Culardoch.||pwbellarby||20/05/2016|
|Walked off the southern spur of Carn Liath onto this heathery dome with the top marked by a large boulder.||torkm||15/05/2016|
|See Craig Leek. Actual top not at all clear, passed over the likely claimants but settled on the large boulder to north end of plateau. Approached from this side (south) best guide is to follow the wall until you can see the boulder over to your left - wish I had done that.||dickscroop||21/06/2015|

|Crossing a gentle boulder slope west of Carn Liath a boulder under my right foot shifted dramatically, throwing me sideways.
Over the next few seconds both feet scrambled to stay upright as each foot rapidly planted on to boulder after shifting boulder for 5-10 metres till finally failing to stay upright falling forward, trying to protect my fall with my right hand but in milliseconds feeling my head crack on to a rock and getting up to realise my glasses had smashed in half and blood was dripping from above my right eye. My right little finger had two gashes on it and noticed my inner right wrist and elbow were grazed. Got some tissue out of pocket to dab the bleeding and sat still for a few moments to try and sense if I was concussed at all. Fortunately it seemed I was fine, head wise, apart from the immediate obvious fairly minor injuries. I found my left knee had also been banged but I was able continue on downhill.||vegibagger||18/07/2014|
