Walked solo, though met an American chap on the descent. Simple circuit from Braemar village centre via excellent path past view indicator and up north ridge to radio-mast decorated summit. Excellent views of surrounding grander mountains with Ben Avon and Lochnagar prominent. Followed service track south over South Top and descending easily to the east to meet the Old Military Road and return to Braemar. Weather mostly bright but with some light showers. No mist. Time 3 hours. A good one for a late afternoon arrival in Braemar!jamessteel10010/08/2019

Second round ascent.pwbellarby 2nd13/05/2015
Solo. Using access track to mast. To Morrone via South Top. Cairn on lefthand side of track at South Top but highest point probably just off track on righthand side. From Morrone back on track and then odd bits of path to Carn na Drochaide. Quite a lot of cairns passed en route that look as though they might be burial cairns. Cairn at highest point.pwbellarby13/05/2015
