Carn an Tuirc (1019m), Cairn of Claise (1064m), Glas Maol (1068m) and Creag Leacach (987m), started just before dawn and was back at my car before sunset, 7.25 hours all in. Two tricky bits, on the ascent to Carn an Tuirc and the return leg on the west slope of Glas Maol where I had to use by cheap, but practical crampons. Also I saw several Ptarmigans and Mountain Hares.chillyman830/12/2018

Four Munros from NO148800, using the route from SMC's Munros book. Dry still day, clear with cloud above most tops.Crib Goch18/10/2015
After ascending Carn Dubh. From Carn Dubh descended SE on track that comes over the summit area. There are several shooting butts adjacent to the track which ascends a little way up Carn an Tuirc. I used a path of sorts which continues up to the summit plateau of Carn an Tuirc from the last shooting butt. Summit cairn of Carn an Tuirc is clearly not the highest point as confirmed by the surveying. Adjacent to the main cairn is another, much smaller one as well as stones forming a shelter. Continued to Cairn of Claise and Sròn na Gaoithe.pwbellarby14/10/2015
