After lunch stroll from the track end shown on the map by the cottage. Just over two hours out and back the same way. A pleasant afternoon.kenmorti19/03/2017
With Peterb. Started from the usual access point opposite Braenaloin and followed the vehicle track to the summit. Clear skies and good views but strong, buffeting wind throughout. Reversed route to return.bowlesy03/01/2017
From Braenaloin. A sharpish scamper up the track to beat the rain blowing in from the west. Somewhat breezy on the top, so I was awfully glad of that shabby cairn! Didn't quite beat the rain on the way down...fantastic views until the clouds descended.Gill31/12/2016
Almost the worst cairn everalda17/09/2016
