During a frequently wet week in Fort Bill with Shaky & Smithy. After early morning rain, parked at Altnafeadh, went through the gate 200m E along the road on the WHW & then struck off up the hillside picking up the very wet path leading back round & then winding up the W ridge. The path is less well defined higher up as the going gets better, but a great view at the top across Rannoch Moor, into Glen Coe & of course across to the Buachaille. Down by the same route, not long before the rain started yet again.NotReallyABagger11/09/2017

Late start after earlier morning walk. From end of road near Kingshouse to top then east over three further Graham tops. Decided against axe having looked careful but for a couple of descents could have done with it. Summits hovering just in and out of cloud but a pretty fine day overall. finished just as getting dark Rannoch Moor in last of crossings between tops lived up to its reputation.dickscroop05/01/2015

I climbed from Altnafeadh on the one dull overcast day between two periods of beautiful high pressure. Bad timing. However, it has great views across to the Buachaille, Glen Coe and to the north. A hill for the views.Kevin2903517/02/2008
