Up tourist track starting at the Youth Hostel. I managed to get up fairly easilly despite one or two crutch-unfriendly-steep sections. Two runners passed me on the way up. I met them coming down near the top and one of them asked if he coud take a photo of me to go on social media. Apparantly he runs a website wit the aim of encouraging youngsters to be more active!GordonAdshead06/11/2019
Easy up and down the viewpoint trail, had to bag this one after seeing it from our holiday cottage in Aviemore all the time, neat little summit and great viewpoint of the Cairngorms, no one else about. Showers on way down.DanTrig20/06/2019

Dropped at Lynwilg, walked track to col below Graham Geal Carn Mor. Fourth time up here now. Out easily on track to Geal Carn Beag, with fine views to Carn Mor. Then fence line to Carn Dearg Mor, continued over 5H to Creah na h-Iolaire and then roughly to Craigellachie and fine path back down to A9 and back of Macdonald Hotel complex.nordicstar25/06/2017
On way north for a few days. An easy walk on a fine path to a good viewpoint.hillsman02/05/2017
Great hill, great views. Good easy path all the way up via north ridge. Came down south from summit. The path south does carry on all the way down but is steeper, slippier and much less used, might be hard to follow as a way up.alda29/12/2016
A good track through a pleasant forest to the summit.JohnW13/04/2016
