Solo. From Alltsigh along tracks through forest and then open ground to dam at NH434213. Up hillside to summit of Glas-bheinn Mhòr. Much snow above 400m not continuous but mostly firm and good walking. Excellent views of snow-covered hills on a fine sunny day. Back down same way.pwbellarby24/02/2018
