With friend. From Spittal of Glenmuick on bikes to Glas-allt-Shiel. Objective: all Munro tops of Broad Cairn and Cairn Bannoch. After Broad Cairn, Craig of Gowal, Crow Craigies, Fafernie, Cairn Bannoch, Cairn of Gowal (983m), Cairn of Gowal (991m). We finished with Creag an Dubh-loch. We reached the summit cairn and it was now becoming misty. We continued a little further NNW as the ground seemed as though it might be getting slightly higher. We saw a large boulder, the top of which might be higher than where the summit cairn is. On a walk many years previously I had seen this boulder and made attempts to climb it. We now headed down NW so as to get round the cliffs of Creag an Dubh-loch and reach Dubh Loch. Up to now the ground had made for easy walking with short grass or heather but now it was getting rougher and was generally quite hard going. It was a relief to reach the proper path and after that we came out of the mist and made rapid progress to Glas-allt-Shiel.pwbellarby06/09/2013

Solo. From car park at Spittal of Glenmuick. Walked on the track beside Loch Muick on the south side, and then climbing up to a small hut. Sheltered inside the hut hay and droppings and had lunch. It was raining and there was a high wind. Continued to reach the summit of Broad Cairn. The wind was increasingly strong, but the rain eased off. Went on to summit of Creag an Dubh-loch. Continued to Cairn Bannoch.pwbellarby03/11/1996
