#2 of 2, from NNW, Easter Altourie. First chickweed wintergreen of the yearRHW02/06/2024
From Cnoc na Gaoithe, it was a reasonably easy, albeit boggy in places, romp across to this summit. Great views up, down and across Loch Ness. Even the snow capped Cairngorms stood out. The return was by the track shown to the south, which eventually landed us back near Blackfold. With Nozzer.BigJ26/04/2024

Very attractive summits & views. Nothing else good! From good parking at Ladycairn thought we'd benefit from a good track up to Carn a Bhodaich. It was anything but. Feet soaked within 500m. Barely a track in places. Cut off up grassy bog at earliest opportunity to fence & summit trig. Following highest ground we picked up the odd animal/mad person trail to reach cairn at .483. Pretty awful ground everywhere. On to Doire Mhor & Cnoc na Gaoithe. The path out was equally bad and indistinct. Vaguely NW then W. Glad to reach the road for the final km.Lynnebe05/08/2023
Solo with Cnoc Na Gaoithe. Going south, parked on the bend before Altourie and headed for the path going NE - very faint but better than the heather.garbo110320/11/2022

2 of 3: From Carn a Bhodaich on a compass bearing in low cloud and mist. Cairn. With Karen.ChrisR02/03/2021
Five minutes into the walk I was joined by a wee terrier I called Trig. He followed me up the muddy path from Ladycairn, bagging Carn a' Bhodaich, Doire Mhor and Cnoc na Gaoithe with me over heather and rock, through deer and sheep. He came to heel when called, ran like a free spirit when not, loved company and aimless chat, and sat patiently for an oaty energy bar. On returning to Ladycairn I was met by his owner's friend, found out he was called Scrappy and had been missing for hours, so had to give him back. An okay set of hills, an excellent walking companion.summitter01/09/2020
