Revisit. Fine bare stony summit, fine views. Late pm circuit from Glencalvie road-end, horseshoe taking in Carn Alladale, the NE top and the 557m summit. Accidentally descended to Alladale Lodge! 8pm luckily no-one about, and the Lodge seemed empty.RHW03/05/2008
I asked at Alladale Lodge where there would be shooting today. I didn't mind which hills I did. I was told that there would be shooting on all the hills but I could have a nice walk up Strath Cuileannach past Croick church or go up to Loch an Tuill Riabhaich and over to the church. I decided to do his suggestion but divert to the top of this hill on the way over.Alan Moore21/09/2005
from S top. a section of all stones and another of clinging moss on stones and final stepped section typical of high altitude prevailing wind/snow with stones at top of each step up. To top at 13.00. Strong NW wind. Square trig with no FB plate built in.arranc26/06/2005
