Fab solo walk, with major sting in tail. Up thro' wonderful open scots pine woods, fluffy cumulus, blue sky above, interesting fungi, grass heads dancing in ocasional light breeze. Long track north. Eight mountain bikers working with BP Aberdeen, from 5 different counties struggle uphill. Cullardoch summiit 12.50. Carn Liath, many topped plateau, two tops 150/200m north of marked highest cairn, look higher. On to newly re-confirmed Corbett Creag an Dail Beag. Then contouring round western side of Carn Liath's slopes en route to southern spur and SE to SIM Creag a'Chait. Before getting there, while contouring across very gently angled slope boulder field, I experienced being conscious of feeling that I was hopping across the boulder field fairly fast and feeling double edged, both proudly happy with what I percieved as fairly good sense of balance, but also conscious of how easy for boulders to move under my feet and throw me off balance. With hind sight, this felt like a pre-cognitionvegibagger18/07/2014

Solo. From walkers' car park at Keiloch. Via Gleann an t-Slugain, Meall an t-Slugain, Carn na Craoibhe Seilich and Creag an Dhail Bheag. Two cairns on Carn Liath. Smaller one looks like highest point but there is another point nearby which is much the same in height. Descended down south ridge.pwbellarby11/01/2013

Calm weather after gales in previous few days. Longish walk from sawmill at Keiloch to S, then onwards to Culardoch. Carn Liath would be tricky in mist: it had three summits, all about the same height.Aye Jimmy10/09/2000

Parked at Keiloch with many others. Rapid progress on access roads through forest and onto open moor. To junction of tracks and trackless heather, using burnt off areas to speed progress. Up onto rock strewn area and first of many cairns. I visited 5 all told, the furthest west is highest, made into a Marilyn in Sept 2013.arranc22/07/1995
