Last of four Munros today in lovely calm cool weather. With GHC.Play2End03/05/2014
4th of 4. The scramble off Lapaich was pretty horrid at times, mainly due to cramps meaning I couldn't stress my hammys. Easy meander along to Gobhar before ascent steepens. Off via South (you'll lose the path) on steep grass before hitting road. 23km, 1860m, 11hr.bowzi20/07/2013

Climbed with Rickard. Rainy start to the day but brightened up considerably by the time we start the ascent at at the west side of Loch Mullardoch (horrible track from where we parked the car to the start of the ascent!). Long day!amcculloch25/08/2012

Superb walking day, lovely ridge and one I hope I do return to one day. The bog on the return from this peak was a slight nightmare and would be tempted to do it when really cold. Company: Martin Stewartiandesbottes20/05/2006
