As it was very windy, walked through the snow all the way up the glen from Shepherds Bridge. Full blizzard conditions on the final summit dash, which luckily arrived quickly once out of the valley. Ski googles proved useful.mindlessflogger23/12/2015

Solo round of 3 Newtonmore Munros - no snow. Very poor visibility. Severe southwesterly headwind on the 7km high level traverse. Cloud cleared on the last summitwychwood31/10/2014
Continuation of walk from A'Chailleach. Dropped down north to burn, steeply up to plateau and so to two cairns on the summit. Descent was south-east to waterfall, and so down to glen - not difficult. Then long slog down the trackless moor to rejoin a stalker's path further down.Man of Kernow115/08/2014

Misty. I followed what I thought was a path but was convinced I was about to circle myself. Used the compass to good gain as even my GPS was confused!Jhimmy23/04/2011
