From Linn of Dee Car Park (NO 06340 89816)). Good track to Derry Lodge, good track/path up Glen Derry (occasionally muddy in places). If Glas Allt Mor is in spate then crossing it could be a problem. Clear, stony path (stepped in places) from Coire Etchachan Burn up onto the summit plateau, visible path to the SW top. Low visibility on the plateau so careful navigation required to reach the Munro summit which is a huge granite tor, a nervy scramble to the top in gale-force conditions!david23020103/10/2019
