Two summits almost the same heightalda09/07/2015
From a tent in Glen Pattack. Went around to the east of the hill via a newly restored/built path and then up to the south top. The north top cairn is worse for wear but does the job. Big views of Badenoch and Ben Alder.fasgadh19/05/2012
Did from Dalwhinnie, along with The FaraWayne Mac14/08/2010
fine summit; dullish approach from S or E. circuit from Dalwhinnie RHW31/05/2003
An unusual approach as I was in kingussie with a bit of time to spare. Took train south to Dalwhinnie, 3km or so south on Loch WErischt track to the only firebreak. Straight up, over 'The Fara' ridge and continued west to summit on a fine clear day. A contrived but surprisingly pleasant route. back by same route except I got the wrong firebreak which did not go right though but sorted it in the end.dickscroopblank
