Solo. From the car park at Spittal of Glenmuick. After ascending Little Pap, Cuidhe Cròm, Cac Càrn Mòr, Cac Càrn Beag and Meall Coire na Saobhaidhe. Went to Creag Liath. Summit has a few stones on a rock. Returned ESE, going to the north of Meikle Pap, to join usual ascent route of Lochnagar and so back to the start. Much light rain on the latter part of the walk.pwbellarby02/08/2016
