A short walk to make the most of indifferent weather. From the road over the col to the summit by the track and back. A superb viewpoint, with 44 Munros visible on a clear day according to the summit viewfinder. I saw none, sadly, but was compensated by sun through the cloud turning the flanks of nearby hills golden-green, and the Spittal of Glenshee's verdant green picked out by the light so that it looked like Rivendell.Nick Down123/09/2017

After completing Badanan, Monanmenach and Mealne Letter decided to test the legs or tell them to shut up on the way up. Parked at forest, up through gate to summit. Actually best views of the day from here. Shame about mast. Cairn informative. Company: Soloiandesbottes17/05/2017

W Jenx from road to north. Take the track to mast, parking opposite the gate for 1/2 cars. Steady if steep pull right to top, 40 mins, 20 mins back. Lot of clutter on top, but good trig (base crack right round!) and fantastic views, Schiehallion in the distance v clear)nordicstar28/06/2014

The path on the map from the B961 is slightly wrong. And the viewpoint symbol is completely misleading. I couldn't see anything - mind you, there was a hailstorm. And then sod's law really struck. After doing three hills in constant rain by the time I got to the bottom of this one there wasn't a cloud in the sky, but as it was dusk it was too late to bag anything else.Martin R20/11/2012

Burns Supper at Muir Cottage (Carngorm Club hut). Solo. I drove over to Glen Shee and the B951 road. I walked to the summit of Mount Blair from a point immediately east of woods. I returned to the road further east, crossed the road and continued to the summit of Mealna Letter also known as Duchray Hill passing over Carn Derig.pwbellarby23/01/1999
Graham No 1. From Altaltan up the east side. Steep at first amongst a few crags, then levelling out before climb to summit. A clear evening although too hazy to see any great distance.Windy Corner31/07/1996
