What a nice walk! And blissfully easy too. I took my bike along the track from Black Bridge, then up the stalkers path towards the hill. Beautiful views of the hidden coires of Am F***, Seana Bhraigh, and Carn Ban, Kildermorie hills/moors and Ben Wyvis. The hill top is gloriously easy to walk on, mainly short tundra and stones.Gill31/07/2016
