Enroute up A straight forward Munro (Sgurr a Mhaoraich), done on a bright and breezy day. met up with a chap called Nigel Simpson and we did the route together . A fine end to a week away.Shutterlag01/05/2017
Path all the way to the top. Met couple who abandoned due to high winds, but it wasn't bad and only breezy on ridge. Just before I got to top, cloud came in. Wanted to descend by south ridge but compass pointed wrong direction, a puzzler (magnetic rock?) later pointed in correct direction, but too late as I just returned by same route.Jhimmy14/10/2016
Cold, windy and clag. Glad to get off !!Moorponder13/10/2016
Not a bad day in between the showers. Steep at the top. I had started on stalkers track past the baby forrest where they actually build a new road up the hill. It finishes where the stalkers track nearly runs out. Good way in the near term. It might be locked in future.tallblond02/07/2016

Managed to get to the start of this walk from Fife with plenty of daylight remaining. A final rocky scramble put the cherry on the cake for this Munro. Great views. Camped near the fancy bridge.Play2End26/11/2014

With family during our holiday. Up the 'standard' route (out to the Top alone) and then descended by south ridge. No views from summit unfortunatley, but had some good ones otherwise. A great mountain.AGWilliamson12/08/2011
