Small cairn may now be a larger one: I met a keeper on the summit rebuilding the cairn with added stone. When I asked, he said he was burying his favourite dog, which was 12 years old. Forgot to ask its name. Loch Turret circuit. Carn Chois, Ben Chonzie, Biorach a'Mheannain, A' Chairidh, Auchnafree, Stonefield Hill, Choinneachain Hill.PGCE05/07/2020

Weather fair.MountainMac21/07/2016
This can be turned into quite a challenging walk by picking a day of deep fresh snow, swimming straight up Ton Eich, wading through the snow drifts in the peat hags at the col and then merely strolling across the plateau to the summit! It makes it into a very scenic and lovely walk as well.Gill17/01/2016
