|From Sherrabeg. Around the north west side of the plantation, then direct to the summit. Deep soft snow and squalls made it hard work. With TH, PJ, AJ, DW.||Owen B||18/02/2020|
|Route as bolton, low cloud, snow on ground, freezing, views but high tops missing.||iangalbraith||07/11/2019|
|Usual way from Sherrabeg, quite pleasant on a fine day.||Jon F||05/11/2019|
|A very pleasant short walk, mainly on a decent path from Sherrabeg. Through the gate, across the field then another gate into deciduous woods, up to a final gate, then a boggy path along the forestry fence leads up parallel to the ridge line, up a squidgy coire, then gets lost in bog vegetables. Hop over the fence where it has fallen down, then up steeply to the plateau. Final stroll on short heather to fine views along Loch Laggan. An interesting and varied walk.||Gill||03/11/2019|
|From S near Poll nan Cuirteag viewpoint. Sunny, with showers which passed by. Snow on tops. En route to Edinb.||Rounsfell||04/03/2019|
|Parked at Sherrabeg. A track follows the edge of the forest through 3 gates on the west side of the burn. Under 2 hours return in reasonably clear conditions. Solo.||bolton||22/02/2019|
|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|
|From layby on A86 at NN56521 90325, from where a road walk was avoided by making my way through the reasonably sparse trees to the power line clearing. My failure to make a mental note as to my surroundings when I popped out in that clear line made my return 'interesting'!

|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|
|A quick up and down from Sherrabeg with Chris.
Followed the stream up and through a couple of deer gates.
Nearly trod on a meadow pipit that was sitting on four eggs.||Peterb||21/05/2017|
|With M, day off from cycling Corbetts. Windy. Easy way up, rough descent for round trip.||douglas_easton||29/04/2017|
|Group of ten NUFWAS bods.||Grinner||01/01/2017|
