An Cabar - Ben Wyvis - Tom a' Choinnich circuit returning via sw ridge. Last 1km back to forest track a little tricky due to felling. Lovely sunny daygaryhoney23/06/2016
An easy walk to the summit but had the compass out as the cloud was for most of the walk down. After 10 minutes at the top the cloud lifted fantastic views, watching 2 ravens showing off their talents. With Kasi. A wet walk mostly in the cloud with a few heavy downpours. About 13 others on the hill todayLizzieG22/06/2016
With Tony, sun! cool breeze. Enjoyable approach along stream through forest. An Cabar-Glas Leathad Mor-Tom a Choinnich-Glas Leathad Beag to end of ridge and back. Moss amazing beyond main summits, very bouncy to walk on!zoob01/06/2016

Solo. Misty start before it became a scorcher! Decent path but struggling after yesterday. The actual summit is deceptively further away from An Cabar. Off via NW and down thru felled forest, can't recommend! 16.6km, 990m, 5hr45.bowzi21/07/2013
First visit north of the Great Glen. Cloud bound from the A835 all the way to near the top of An Caber when blue skies appeared overhead and a tremendous inversion appeared all the way along the ridge to the summit.Windy Corner08/06/2013
