Solo climb. Good path to start but rougher as you get higher which made the descent tougher than expected as there were a lit of loose rocks. Still a fun climb.Thomas McIlvaney21/07/2019

My second ever Munro. Visiting family in various locations round the central belt, wanted to do a Munro. This was recommended to me. Camped in a field near comrie, which is a superb little village. The south loch earn road was being tarmacked which gave us some troubles but otherwise this was a straightforward Munro, to and from aardvorlich too 5-6 hourstumpawumpa07/08/2017
