A really enjoyable walk, with almost no bogs and relatively little heather and tussocks. Easy paths get you some of the way up and down the hill, and the going above is easy. The long summit ridge/plateau is wonderful, with easy strolling and huge views.Gill28/10/2016
Sudden tempestuous snow flurry at the trig point. Then the cloud lifted revealing glorious views to the Ben Nevis range. Then a very cold and lost collie dog with minor cuts on its paws appeared, and we led it down the hill. About two thirds of the way down it trotted off. When we got back to the car a note had been left by the local farmer thanking us for rescuing it. He had seen us leading it down the hill with his binoculars.Owen B17/02/2016

From near Inverskilavulin in Glen Loy. I walked NW along road for a bit and then up hillside somewhat to east of forest. I passed over tops of Beinn Bhàn (two, both 771m), then trig point (796m). I descended south to begin with, then SW and along burn to Inverskilavulin. Weather good, but some mist.pwbellarby31/08/1997

Solo run in rain to lay a demon to rest after blundering around in avalanche prone conditions a year ago. Of course it all looked nice and friendly in the boggy wet - although the upper part of Coire Chnamh is where we must have strayed onto steep avalanche prone slopes and luckily got away with it -hopefully learnt a lesson. Today found the trig. 1hr 40 m up and down in fell shoes. Then drove home to Sheffield.Chris Pearson01/01/1992
Deep snow with a category 5 avalanche risk in place combined with 2 metre visibility in cloud, pretty much a white / grey out, with blowing spindrift thrown in . Thought I could bag this Corbett on this risky last day of the year by easily following the forest edge up and avoiding any steep ground - which worked until the summit plateau but failed to find the trig. With Linda & Shealagh.Gave up and then the bearing down (from an unknown point on the top) led to deep snow on a side slope;hard to work out where exactly we were or how steep the slope was in the poor visibility or how avalanche prone we were -rolled snowballs down which accelerated- got v worried about the avalanche risk. After a few anxious moments all worked out and safely reached road. Not v impressed with my navigation. Two nights later the main Glencoe road was avalanched -crash barrier and all after heavy rain lubricated the snow pack. Went back 1 year later to see where we had been. see separate enryChris Pearson31/12/1990
