Walked solo. Standard tourist route from Invermark car park via Glen Mark cottage, Ladder Burn and the Mounth road. Return same way. Easy route on a wide track with the scenery gradually improving with height. Summit is a stony and heathery dome sitting on a high plateau. Despite its dull reputation, there are superb views over the eastern Cairngorms, Mounth and Angus glens to the coast. Lochnagar is particularly impressive. Weather dry and mostly sunny. Time 6 hours.jamessteel10012/08/2019
From parking area at end of public road in Glen Tanar (NO 47396 95636). Very long approach but easy walking on a well-surfaced track, some excellent work being done re-constructing the ascent path from the footbridge at NO 406895 to the summit. Would recommend a mountain bike to cover the distance between the car park and the footbridge above!david23020103/07/2019
