Walked in Thurs 20th from Gen Feshie to camp on Tom Dubh. Wake on solstice to total silence, wind free. First sound is a bird song, then tumbling water as I cross first stream up to Cairn Toul. Wisps of cloud hang like a jellyfish with numerous tendrils hanging down, above Beinn Bhrotain to the south. CT for the third time SaLU for the second time and as I head for the Braeriach plateau, frustratingly a bank of cloud rolls over. Meet Canadian guy, Mark in the clagg, we wander the plateau a little disorientated towards eastern cliffs. Quite a bit of confusion and uncertainty, eventually get there, mist is thinning. As we part, I head further NE towards my northern Murdo. Hot and clear by this time. On way back I contour round the western edge of the plateau look down into Loch Coire an Lochain and across tops to Carn na Criche.vegibagger20/06/2013

Bagged on return from a solo day's hike in sun & extensive snow on plateau, cycling into Glen Einich. Couldn't help feeling that this totally insignificant hill was included in Munro's tables as a joke!barnz4806/05/2012

Solo. After Geal-charn, Meall Buidhe, Sgòran Dubh Mòr, Sgor Gaoith and Carn Bàn Mòr. I went to Tom Dubh. The top is very flat and it is difficult to distinguish the highest point from several candidates, which were all visited. Continued to reach the summit of Monadh Mòr before returning over the summit of Meall Dubhag. Went down the path to Achlean and walked along the road to reach the car. The weather was good.pwbellarby10/09/1995

The only time Plan B instigated: if the weather in the West is rubbish, run away East. From Glen Feshie a round of tops plus Sgor Gaoith and Mullach Clach a'Bhlair. Tom Dubh - even though it belongs to some other Munro in the tables.Eddie13/07/1992
