|Pretty much followed the same route as Aqueously90. Parked at the Slochd Mhor lodge, then walked past Insharn and around the bottom of Carn an Ailean. When we were more or less directly SW of the trig, we started cutting up the hill. It was a bit of a slog, but we made it there in the end. Trig is a Vanessa-type pillar, with a significant cairn a few metres to the NE. Great views of the Cairngorms and surrounding area. Took a more direct route back down towards the ruined cottage - 3.5 hours round trip on a glorious sunny day ;-)||thejackrustles||24/05/2017|
