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
Quiet day but much cloudier than forecast - except it cleared on the way down. Deep soft snow and a bit of a slog - must come back when it's sunny!Capt Malbec05/02/2017
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
