|Used SMC Grahams book route starting from near Sherrabeg. Showers with mist at summit, but with occasional weather windows revealing good views, especially down to Loch Laggan. Fairly distinct grassy path, becoming more vague past forest.||ger||30/12/2018|
|Bagging the trig. Parked below the marked fort near to the Spey Dam. Followed informal mountain bike tracks up to the fort. Great view. From there followed a marked path south west up on to the summit of Black Wood Hill. From here the going was much rougher and included crossing a deer fence. The Vanessa is a little way off the summit. The views were astounding. The descent was by the obvious ridge to the north to Sherrabeg and then back along the road.||BigJ||30/08/2017|
|After doing the TUMP this was very tedious but a very quick descent back to the car.||Play2End||30/06/2017|
|With Peterb from Sherrabeg. Followed a squelchy path up through young woodland which goes through two deer fences lower down which have gates that open. The last deer fence near the top required climbing as there is no gate.
Easy ascent on short grassy, heathery slopes to the summit trig point. Retraced route to return.||bowlesy||21/05/2017|
