Second of the day and unfortunately in cloud.Roblex09/06/2015
A round of three Munro's the last time i attempted this round i was beaten back by adverse weather. The weather today was interesting with a magnificent inversion flowing from Loch Duich to Loch Ness, i rose above and walked in sunshine for most of the way until cloud came in on the way to the col before Saileag. The combination of cloud and low sun treated me to a Brocken spectre complete with glory that followed me for about ten minutes or more.thenomad10/11/2014

Parked at approx NH 055 115 at the edge of the plantation and used path up Coire Tholl Bhruach to bag this my 200th Munro as it was the best of the 3 on the route. Lovely sunny but windy day. Far better to start here then a long boring walk on a road.Jhimmy16/05/2014
Good clear day. Little snow to the top but the final ridge to the summit carn was snowed up. It is a little exposed and a bit of a scramble but no hard moves. Any wind would make it serious in winterwychwood26/03/2014
